PAULA ZAHN, CNN ANCHOR: We've got some breaking news out of Washington. We've been talking about the speculation about whether J.C. Watts would run or not for his Oklahoma district. We have just learned at CNN he will not run again. He has five children, and he has long talked about the need to spend more time with his family. We imagine that that figured into his equation of deciding not to run again.

But Mr. Watts will make a formal announcement a little bit later on today.

But CNN confirming that we have learned that, in fact, J.C. Watts will not run again for reelection from the state of Oklahoma.
