Ensign Says He Has “Repented” For Affair
Senator John Ensign says he has “repented” for his affair with a former staffer. Ensign’s admission came during a town hall meeting in Las Vegas on Tuesday. The Republican lawmaker says the affair is, quote, “something I will regret for the rest of my life.” Ensign says he’s determined to run for re-election next year, despite speculation Congressman Dean Heller will challenge him in the GOP primary. Heller has not yet announced his plans for 2012.
