GOP Rep. Brown-Waite To Make ‘Major Announcement’

Could Rep. Ginny Brown-Waite (R-FL) be retiring? The St. Petersburg Times reports that the fourth-term Congresswoman has scheduled a “major announcement” at the Citrus County GOP’s Lincoln Day Dinner tonight:

In a short and cryptic statement, the Brooksville Republican said she would do so “amongst family, friends, longtime supporters and party faithfuls.”

Her aides said they did not know what the announcement would be, including how it factors in her re-election bid.

A Republican source told TPMDC that they did not know whether she is retiring. It could be a retirement, the source said, or it could be a re-election announcement or possibly something else.
