United States Sen. Mitt Romney announced his re-election plans on Wednesday. He said he enjoys his work a “good deal,” but after another term, he’d be in his mid-80s.

“Frankly, it’s time for a new generation of leaders,” Romney said. “They’re the ones that need to make the decisions that will shape the world they will be living in.”

Romney said neither President Donald J. Trump nor President Joe Biden led their respective party to confront the “critical challenges” facing the nation, such as the national debt, climate change and authoritarians of Russia and China.

“The next generation of leaders must take America to the next stage of global leadership,” Romney said. “While I’m not running for re-election, I’m not retiring from the fight.”
