Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas), one of the most consistent opponents of pro-Israel legislation, said he will not run again as a congressman.

“I have decided not to seek re-election to Congress,” Paul, 75, said Tuesday on his Twitter account.

He linked to a story in The Facts, a Texas news site, in which he said he would focus on his longshot bid to secure the GOP nomination for president.

Paul, a favorite of the Tea Party who once ran for president on the Libertarian ticket, has opposed U.S. assistance to Israel.

His son, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), has similar views.
