SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) -- Rep. Jack Kingston will soon return to private life after 22 years in Congress.
The Savannah Republican's streak of election victories since 1992 ended when he lost a Senate primary runoff to businessman David Perdue. Two other congressmen who ran unsuccessfully for the Senate -- GOP Reps. Paul Broun of Athens and Phil Gingrey of Marietta -- will be heading home next year as well.
As a member of the House Appropriations Committee, Kingston was known as a congressman who could steer federal funding to his district -- whether for port expansion, military construction or agriculture improvements.
Kingston is uncertain about what's next for his future.
