Republican Rep. Lynn Westmoreland on Friday announced his decision to run for re-election to Georgia’s 3rd District, ending speculation he would run for the open seat governor’s race in 2010.

“While my decision will be good news for some and disappointing to others, I believe it’s best for me and my family,” Westmoreland said in a statement. The three-term congressman expressed his desire to continue representing his western Atlanta-area constituents, adding that he was “also excited about leadership roles” he has taken.  

Westmoreland is a deputy whip, an appointed position.
