220px-Rep._Rodney_AlexanderSix-term 5th District U.S. Rep. Rodney Alexander won’t run for re-election next year, the congressman told The News-Star in an exclusive interview this afternoon. The paper reported:
Alexander, R-Ruston, who hadn’t yet drawn serious opposition for 2014, said he’s grown weary of brutal party politics in Washington and fund-raising.
