Johanns Won't Seek Another Term

Sen. Mike Johanns (R-NE) "is expected to rock the Nebraska political scene this afternoon, announcing that he will retire after his term ends in 2014," the Omaha World-Herald reports.

"Johanns, who is heading back to Nebraska this morning, began to make telephone calls to key supporters, letting them know of his decision, several sources said."

Roll Call: "Nebraska Gov. Dave Heineman (R) is term-limited from seeking re-election in 2014 and is considered a likely candidate in the race to replace Johanns. The governor has the right of first refusal, and if he runs he would be the '400-pound gorilla' in the race... Most other Republicans would likely defer to him."
