NRSC: Statement by Chairman Moran on Senator Johanns Retirement

Statement by U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-KS), Chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, on the announcement by U.S. Senator Mike Johanns and the 2014 Nebraska Senate race:

“Mike Johanns epitomized principled leadership during his near three decades of public service, always putting the needs of Nebraskans first. I thank him for his service and wish he and his family the very best in their next chapter. The Cornhusker state will look to continue its strong conservative tradition by electing an equally dedicated Republican leader in 2014.”

GOP Sen. Johanns of Nebraska to retire:

GOP Sen. Mike Johanns of Nebraska will not seek re-election next year, telling his supporters in an e-mail that the time is right after three decades in public service.

“With everything in life there is a time and season,” said Johanns, a former U.S. Agriculture secretary and governor.

Johanns was first elected to the Senate in 2008. He recently bucked his party by saying he will vote to confirm fellow Nebraskan Chuck Hagel for Defense secretary — only the second GOP senator to support the embattled Obama nominee.

Democrats are likely to take a run at Nebraska next year, in part because of the need to expand the playing field. Democrats will defend 21 Senate seats in 2014, compared with 14 for Republicans.
