Duckworth resigns as Veterans Affairs Assistant Secretary

WASHINGTON (HawaiiNewsNow) - Veterans Affairs Assistant Secretary Tammy Duckworth has resigned.

The McKinley High School graduate and Iraq war veteran may now possibly return to Chicago to run for a House seat from the new 8th Congressional District.

Last month while she was in Hawaii, Duckworth said she was not sure if she'd run for office again, but if she does, it will not be in Hawaii.
