Former Sen. Pressler Will Run for House

November 04, 2001|From Times Wire Reports

Former GOP Sen. Larry Pressler returned to his hometown of Humboldt to announce his candidacy for the House of Representatives, the job that first took him to Washington in 1975.

"I have enjoyed my time in private life. I'm refreshed, my batteries are recharged and I'm ready to go," Pressler, 59, told about 100 supporters. "It's a major job. It's a tough job," he said of the state's only House seat.

He was first elected to the House in 1974. He won his first Senate term in 1978. He was defeated in 1996 by Democrat Tim Johnson, making him the only Senate incumbent who lost that year.
