 (Atlanta-AP) -- State Senator Peg Blitch has decided not to seek re-election after 14 years of serving south Georgia in the Legislature. Blitch was elected to the House of Representatives in 1990 and won her first term in the Senate two years later.

The Democrat from Homerville said Monday she had no idea she would remain in office for more than a decade. She told The Valdosta Daily Times that she never intended a career in politics.

Blitch remains in Atlanta awaiting the special session called by Governor Perdue. She said she was working to clear her desk in anticipation of another senator taking office January second and said it is the right time to return home and enjoy family and friends.
