U.S. Sen. Peter Fitzgerald is not going to seek a second term in office.
Fitzgerald called close supporters to inform them of his decision not to run for re-election. Fitzgerald's Illinois seat is considered key to Republican chances to hold the senate in 2004.
He faced a potentially tough race in a state that has increasingly leaned Democratic in recent elections.
