Rep. John F. Seiberling (D-Ohio), one of the most liberal members of the House, announced in Akron, Ohio, that he will not seek a ninth term in Congress. Seiberling, 67, decided to end his career after a recent bout with cancer. "Happily, as it turned out, I do not have generalized cancer," he said. "My health is excellent, but that still made me think a lot about the situation. I decided this was a good time for me to bow out."
