NJ Sen. Frank Lautenberg says he will retire



TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — U.S. Sen. Frank Lautenberg says he will not seek re-election when his term ends in 2015.

The 89-year-old Democratic lawmaker is the last remaining veteran of World War II in the Senate and has been elected easily five times but was facing a likely challenge from charismatic Newark Mayor Cory Booker.

Lautenberg is a staunch advocate of gun control and public infrastructure and is a champion of the Amtrak railroad.

He first won election to the Senate in 1982.
