“There
is much more that needs to be done to keep America strong. And while I
relish the opportunity to undertake the work that lies ahead, I also
feel it’s time for me to step away from elective office, spend more time
with my family, and look for new ways to serve our state and nation,”
Nelson said. “Therefore, I am announcing today that I will not seek
reelection. Simply put: It is time to move on.”
