Angelo Putting Family First -- For Real

As Iowa Independent reported this morning, State Sen. Jeff Angelo, the Creston Republican who represents the largest senate district in the Hawkeye State, has announced that he will not seek re-election in 2008.

Angelo, a three-term senator, says the role of father and soon-to-be new husband to Tara van Brederode of Ames -- not to mention the couple's time-share arrangement between Ames and Creston for the benefit of the kids involved who are rooted in schools -- make legislative service beyond 2008 too much.

The senator says he plans to be active in the coming legislative session, however.
