GOP Congressmen

U.S. Rep. Leonard Lance (R-7) is “weighing retirement,” according to a report in the AP.

Editor’s Note: The AP issued a correction and pulled Lance’s name from the story.

Lance Campaign Manager Jim Hilk denied it in the strongest terms and pointed to a Hill piece in which Lance himself puts an exclamation point on retirement talk.

From the Hill:

Rep. Leonard Lance (R-N.J.) said the retirements haven’t caused him to think twice about his own career in Washington. Instead, he said he’s definitely running for reelection.
“I’m confident that my views are the views of the overwhelming majority of the district I serve. It’s a district that believes in governing,” Lance told The Hill.
