Republican Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah on Wednesday announced that he will not seek reelection when his current term ends in early 2025.
“Frankly, it’s time for a new generation of leaders,” Romney, 76, said in a video posted to X, formerly Twitter.
Romney was elected to the Senate in 2018, a return to elected office for the former governor of Massachusetts who mounted a failed bid to unseat then-President Barack Obama in 2012.
Romney said in August that he would reveal his decision on running for another Senate term by the fall.
