Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions of Alabama says he plans to run for a fourth term next year.

Sessions is beginning his 17th year of service in the Senate. The 66-year-old senator said Wednesday in Montgomery he's still enjoying serving in Washington and plans to run again in 2014.

All six Republicans in Alabama's House delegation voted against legislation to avoid the fiscal cliff, while the state's lone Democrat voted for it.

Republican U.S. Reps. Jo Bonner, Martha Roby, Mike Rogers, Robert Aderholt, Spencer Bachus and Mo Brooks cast no votes, and Democratic Rep. Terri Sewell voted yes on the legislation that passed 257-167 Tuesday.
