Mitt Romney, the Republican Party’s presidential nominee in 2012, told the Washington Post that he will not run for a new term in the Senate. This may mean that his political career will end in January 2025.
Romney, 76, has been a member of the Senate since 2019. He was previously governor of Massachusetts, and in 2012 he lost the election to Democrat Barack Obama.
Romney is considered a moderate Republican and has been in the news frequently in recent years as an outspoken critic of Donald Trump. He was the only member of Trump’s party to vote for impeachment twice.
In an interview on Wednesday with The Washington Post, Romney also expressed strong criticism of Trump, as well as current President Joe Biden. Because one of them may become president again soon, Romney believes that another term in the Senate would not be very fruitful for him.
