Citing what it called three high-placed Republican sources, the newspaper said Republican Party officials are left finding a replacement candidate for the Nov. 6 general election. The Washington publication Roll Call said one of its sources confirmed LaTourette has decided not to run for re-election.
The Dispatch said one source indicated LaTourette is bowing out over a dispute with House leadership about future committee assignments.
LaTourette, considered a moderate Republican and confidant of House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio, was to face Democrat Dale Blanchard in the general election.
