Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) announced he’s not seeking reelection after his term ends in January 2025.
“I have 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-eighties. Frankly, it’s time for a new generation of leaders. They’re the ones that need to make the decisions that will shape the world they will be living in,” Romney said in a video statement.
Former Department of Homeland Security agent Tim Ballard, the subject of the movie “Sound of Freedom,” said he’s considering running for the soon-to-be open seat.
Ballard made the announcement during an appearance on “The Sean Spicer Show.”
