Congressman Hastert opening the 108th Congress

J. Dennis Hastert, M.C., born January 2, 1942 (age 72), was the Speaker of the House (1999-2007), preceding Nancy Pelosi and succeeding Newt Gingrich, and was a Republican Representative from Illinois.

On November 26, 2007, Hastert submitted his resignation to Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich. Hastert wanted to give the governor sufficient time to set a special primary election for February 5, 2008 so that voters could pick candidates to run for the remainder of his term, which was to end in January 2009.
