    Texas GOP Rep. Randy Neugebauer says he'll retire from Congress next year after 14 years of House service.

    The 65-year-old Neugebauer says he wants to spend more time with his family, including his 4-year-old granddaughter.

    The genial Texan has cut a relatively low profile on Capitol Hill since his election in 2003. He serves on the Financial Services and Agriculture committees.

    He won a high-profile 2004 race after redistricting paired him against conservative Democrat Charlie Stenholm and has skated to re-election ever since.

    He had radiation treatments this summer after a recurrence of prostate cancer but has been declared free of the disease by his doctors.
