“He’s been a great congressman and a great friend and a true leader. And I understand and appreciate where Steve’s coming from. Sometimes, you listen to a speech and wonder, ‘I must be out of my mind to want to do this.’ But if I don’t, who will?”

Joyce says he plans to stay with the prosecutor's office until January due to the Chardon school shooting case.

He had been nominated to be the U.S. attorney for northern Ohio a decade ago, but sources at the time said questions arose during a background check. The prosecutor now chalks the questions up to politics.

The Democratic challenger, and perennial candidate, Dale Blanchard says he has no plans to step aside for someone the party thinks has a better chance of winning.

LaTourette announced last week that he's retiring due to gridlock in Washington.
Listener Comments:

The "someone the party thinks has a better chance of winning" is Dennis Kucinich? They are fooling themselves. He hasn't got a chance in the district.
