Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa, chairman of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) Committee, announced Saturday that he will not seek re-election for his term expiring in 2014.

Harkin said in a statement that his decision was twofold: to fulfill a promise that he made to his wife and, after 40 years as a congressman and senator, to “make way for someone new” to fill his Senate seat.
