    Texas Rep. Ron Paul says he won't run for another term in Congress so he can concentrate on his bid for the GOP presidential nomination.

    In a message posted on his Facebook page, Paul announced his retirement from the U.S. House.

    "I have decided not to seek re-election for my House seat in 2012 and will focus all of my energy winning the presidency," he wrote.

    Paul, 75, told a local paper in his congressional district that he didn't want to be distracted by running two campaigns at once. The libertarian-thinking candidate, who has a devoted following among supporters of his small government views, is running in his third White House campaign.
