Johanns, former governor of Nebraska, will reportedly not seek reelection to his Senate seat at the end of his term.

Johanns, who succeeded current Defense Secretary nominee Chuck Hagel, was elected to the Senate in 2008 and plans to retire in 2014.

Looks like the GOP will have another primary on its hands:

    Hope the Tea Party is getting a candidate setup!

    Sen. Johanns supports and votes confirmation of Hagel. That’s all you need to know about him.
    He will retire to the Zuzuland Rhino Reserve.
    Yes there is one:

    • GaryTheBrave

      That’s likely a “favorite son” endorsement.

  • descolada9

    Waiting to see which “good ol’ boy” we’ll have to replace him. Would like to see another Deb Fischer upset of the stale old figures in the state, but not holding my breath. Interesting that he announces this after the backlash he’s receiving over his pro-Hagel vote.

    • KornKing

      My money’s on Dave Heineman.

  • Booker

    Teea Paaarty! Let’s get swinging!
