Pennsylvania Sen. John Pippy, R-Moon, will not seek re-election.

He released the following statement on Tuesday afternoon:

"I am announcing today that I will not seek re-election to the Senate of Pennsylvania in 2012. Since 1997, I have had the pleasure of serving and working alongside the constituents of the 37th Senatorial District and 44th Legislative District. Over the years, I have met many wonderful and dedicated people in the public and private sectors, and am grateful for the support and encouragement of so many. It has been truly an honor and privilege to serve the people of Pennsylvania and I will be forever grateful for that opportunity."

It's unclear who will replace state Sen. Pippy. State Rep. John Maher, R-Upper St. Clair, is running for state auditor general.

That's a shame....I thought Pippy was a good man, and I wish him nothing but the best. It would appear that the PA Senate is about to undergo some changes with this whole Orie business and other things......For better or worse, but in our case, probably worse.
