Ohio GOP Sen. George Voinovich is scheduled to announce tomorrow afternoon his decision to retire from the Senate.
When I think of George Voinovich, I think of his inane blubbering about the shamnesty debacle. Blubber, blubber.
I think of his crusading for the massive auto bailout.
And I think of his mortifying meltdown in opposition to John Bolton’s UN ambassador nomination in 2005, which prompted embarrassed conservatives to start a “Console George” campaign to send him tissues.
DLTDHYOTWO, Crybaby George. You represent some of the worst aspects of the Republican Party. Won’t be missed:
Sources close to Sen. George Voinovich, R-Ohio, tell CNN he will announce Monday he is retiring from the Senate.
The 72-year-old senator and former Ohio governor has been contemplating retirement for a while but made his final decision this weekend in Florida, where he was joined by his wife, children and grandchildren, according to one of the sources.
Voinovich plans to serve out his term, which expires in 2010.
He plans to make the announcement at 4 p.m. ET Monday in Washington, the source said.
