WASHINGTON-Senate Banking Committee Member Zell Miller (D-Ga.) recently announced that he would not seek reelection. His term, to which he was appointed and then won a special election to after Senator Paul Coverdell (R) died, ends in 2004. The Senator made the announcement last on his official Web site. “It has been a great honor to serve as a U.S. senator from Georgia, and I thank Governor Barnes for appointing me and the people of Georgia for electing me,” he said. In related news, Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle announced last Tuesday that he would not run for president in 2004. “I’ve long believed that in order to be successful as a Presidential candidate, one must be 100 percent focused on that single goal. I have given this a lot of thought, and talked extensively with family, friends, colleagues and supporters – and they were tremendously supportive. They urged me strongly to run. And to be honest, I came very close to deciding in favor of running. “Yet, after careful reflection, I’ve concluded that at this moment in our history, with so many important decisions to be made about our nation’s future, my passion lies here in the Senate serving the people of South Dakota, and fighting for working families all across America,” Daschle said.
