Senator Jon Kyl retiring

February 10, 2011 Leave a comment

The number two Republican in the Senate is calling it quits:

Three-term Sen. Jon Kyl will announce his retirement at a noon ET news conference Thursday in Phoenix, two Republican sources confirmed to Fox News.

The Arizona lawmaker, the No. 2 Republican in the Senate, will be the fifth senator scheduled for re-election next year to announce a departure from Congress in 2012.

Kyl, 68, served four terms in the House before winning a Senate seat. In 2006, he was named one of the 10 best senators by Time Magazine.

That leaves, I believe, John Cornyn and Lamar Alexander for the number two slot.
