Bush’s Agriculture Secretary quitting to run for Senate.

Following the news last week that Sen. Chuck Hagel (R-NE) will not seek another term in office, Secretary of Agriculture Mike Johanns “has decided to resign from President Bush’s cabinet to return to Nebraska and enter the 2008 Senate race.” Johanns, a former two-term Republican governor, is expected to make a formal announcement in Nebraska next week after he “has submitted his resignation to the White House.”
