RINO Romney says won’t seek 2024 Senate reelection: ‘Time for a new generation of leaders’

By Madeleine Hubbard

Utah Republican Sen. Mitt Romney on Wednesday said he does not plan on running for reelection, ending decades in public office as he cites his age and says, "It’s time for a new generation of leaders."

Romney, who ran as the GOP presidential candidate in 2012, said in a video: "I’ve spent my last 25 years in public service of one kind or another. At the end of another term, I’d be in my mid-80s."
