Here's the official statement from Senate Majority Leader Joseph Bruno, as distributed via a press release printed on his distrinctive blue-and-white leadership letterhead:
"Today I met with my Republican colleagues in the Senate and informed them that I will not be running for re-election this November."
'Time To Move On With My Life'
Hmmm...could lose a Republican seat. And as for local state senators, Forand says, "Not so fast, Serph".
