SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Democratic U.S. Sen. Tim Johnson of South Dakota plans to retire at the end of his term, party officials said Monday - a departure that gives Republicans a prime opportunity to pick up a seat as they attempt to win back control of the chamber in 2014.

Johnson, the chairman of the Senate Banking Committee, suffered a brain hemorrhage in 2006 but later returned to the Senate and won re-election in 2008. He has recovered significantly, though sometimes uses a motorized scooter.
