Congressman Who Wins Primary May Retire After Current Term


Just days after he coasted to an easy Republican primary win, Congressman Tim Johnson will reportedly drop out of his re-election race and announce that he will retire at the end of his current term.

 

Top GOP officials confirm the decision, which Johnson is expected to announce at a news conference in Urbana later today. No immediate reason was given for the decision.

 

Party officials will appoint someone to take Johnson’s place on the November ballot, that person will most likely face Bloomington physician David Gill, who holds on to a narrow lead in the unofficial vote count from last month’s Democratic primary.
