Sen. Mitt Romney Announces He Won’t Seek Reelection

Republican Senator Mitt Romney of Utah has officially announced that he will not seek reelection. In a video message posted on Twitter, Romney stated, “Frankly, it’s time for a new generation of leaders.” He also emphasized his commitment to continue working on important issues until his term ends in January 2025.

While announcing his decision, Romney commented on the state of leadership, saying, “We’re probably going to have either Trump or Biden as our next president. And Biden is unable to lead on important matters, and Trump is unwilling to lead on important matters.”

Romney, who attended Brigham Young University for college and returned to Utah in 2013, was elected to the Senate in 2018, succeeding the retiring Orrin Hatch. Notably, he became the first member of Congress to vote to impeach or remove a president of his own party in 2020 and voted to remove President Trump again in 2021.

Throughout his time in the Senate, Romney has been involved in bipartisan efforts, particularly related to infrastructure spending and gun control. His decision not to seek reelection will pave the way for new leadership in Utah.
