Congressman Dan Burton will not run for reelection in the 5th Congressional District. He made his announcement on the floor of the Indiana House Tuesday.
Burton has served in Congress since 1983, but earlier in his career he held seats in both the state House and Senate. He says he wanted to announce his decision not to run again at the place where his political career began.
Looking back at his career, Burton says he’s been proud of his work as a legislator.
