Senator Jeffords Will Not Seek Re-Election in 2006
Washington, D.C. - April 20, 2005
Vermont Senator Jim Jeffords will not seek re-election
The Independent Senator made national headlines four
years ago when he left the Republican party because of
disagreements with the Bush Administration.
The 70 year-old Jeffords has been adamant in saying he
will seek re-election, but there have been increasing
concerns about his health in recent weeks.
A press conference is scheduled for one o'clock this
afternoon in South Burlington.
