Clymer will seek re-election

State Rep. Paul Clymer, a Republican who has represented the 145th state House District since 1980, will run for re-election despite announcing recently that he plans to retire.

From the Lansdale Reporter:
At age 72, Clymer said he remains in good health.

He is humbled by the support he's received, both from the public and from party leaders who asked him to run again, Clymer said.

"The people are moving this forward. It's something that I did not initiate," he said. "This is a mandate from my community."

The 145th District includes East Rockhill, West Rockhill, Perkasie, Sellersville, Haycock, Milford, Quakertown, Richland, Richlandtown, Springfield and Trumbauersville.
This is one less seat the Republicans have to worry about in their quest to recapture the majority in the state House.

Democrats hold a 104-99 majority in the 203-seat House but with the anti-Obama, anti-Rendell, anti-incumbent mood of the electorate, expect the GOP to win back control of the House this November.
