GOP Senator John Ensign of Nevada says he won't seek re-election

LAS VEGAS — GOP Senator John Ensign of Nevada says he won't seek re-election.

Ensign, who is under investigation by the Senate Ethics Committee, made the announcement Monday in Las Vegas.

He acknowledged in June 2009 that he had an extramarital affair with a former member of his campaign staff, and that he had helped her husband, a member of his congressional staff, obtain lobbying work with a Nevada company.

In recent months, he had been adamant that he would seek re-election and that he did nothing to violate the law or Senate ethics rules.
