Agriculture official to run for Senate

September 20, 2007|From Times Wire Reports

U.S. Agriculture Secretary Mike Johanns is expected to resign today to clear the way for a Senate campaign in 2008, Republican officials said in Omaha.

President Bush plans a White House announcement this morning with Johanns, a senior administration official confirmed. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because the announcement had not been made.

The GOP officials in Omaha said Johanns, 57, who was governor from 1999 to 2005, would seek the seat held by retiring Republican Sen. Chuck Hagel.
