WASHINGTON (AP) Speaker Dennis Hastert, R-Ill., told fellow Republican lawmakers on Wednesday he does not intend to run for minority leader when Democrats take control of the House in January, officials said.

 

Hastert conveyed word in a conference call one day after Republicans lost control of the House in midterm elections.
