From Michigan Democratic Party:
LANSING — The Michigan Democratic Party released the following statement on U.S. Sen. Carl Levin’s announcement that he will not seek re-election in 2014:
“Carl Levin is an icon of integrity and a model for distinguished and courageous public service. For 34 years, Senator Levin has fought for Michigan’s working families, and as Chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee he has stood up for our brave men and women in uniform,” said Michigan Democratic Party Chair Lon Johnson. “For decades he has sought truth and demanded accountability from special interests. Today Senator Levin demonstrated his selfless commitment to those principles, announcing that he will devote himself entirely to serving the people of Michigan until his term ends in January 2015.
“There will be another day to discuss the 2014 election, but today I join with all Michiganders in expressing my gratitude to my friend and role model, Senator Carl Levin.”
