Civil Rights Icon To Run Again

ATLANTA - Civil rights icon and U.S. Rep. John Lewis said today he's running for office again.   The longest-serving member of the state's congressional delegation said, "I'm not prepared to give up or give in. I am prepared to work."

The Georgia Democrat said he was "not in any way tired" and wants to again stand for his Atlanta district, which he has represented since 1986.

"The people in this district have been very, very good to me, and I have tried to be good to the people," said Lewis.

Lewis was a prominent civil rights activist in the 1960s.

He joined the Freedom Riders in May 1961, riding interstate buses on a campaign to get the federal government to enforce a Supreme Court ruling prohibiting segregation in bus stations.

Lewis was recognized in February with the Presidential Medal of Freedom for his bravery during the civil rights era.
