Mitt Romney to retire from Senate

Republican Senator Mitt Romney announced on Wednesday that he would not seek re-election in 2024. Romney, who has represented Utah in the Senate since 2019, also ran for president in 2012 against Barack Obama.

In a statement, Romney said, “I am at a stage in my career where I am looking forward to spending more time with my family and exploring new opportunities.” He added, “I am grateful for my service to my state and country, and I am excited to see what the future holds.”

Romney’s announcement is a blow to the Republican Party in Utah. He is a popular figure in the state, and he was considered a strong contender for the Republican nomination in 2024.

After Romney’s announcement, several Republican leaders in Utah praised his service. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said, “Mitt Romney is a distinguished and respected leader who has always put the best interests of his country and his state first.”

Romney’s announcement is a major change in the race for the 2024 presidential election. He was considered a leading contender, and his announcement opens up an opportunity for other candidates in the Republican Party.
