HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Pennsylvania House Speaker Sam Smith is expected to announce that he won't run for another term and will retire when his 14th term ends on Nov. 30
Two people Smith told of his decision said he would make it public Tuesday. The two people spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because they did not want to disclose what the 58-year-old Smith had told friends and associates in private a day earlier.
Smith's decision would end his service as the top state House official after four years. Smith, a Republican, is facing a potentially tough challenge in his 66th District seat in northwestern Pennsylvania's Jefferson County.
