Alabama US Sen. Shelby announces he won't seek a 7th term

 

Alabama's senior senator will not be seeking reelection in 2022.

Republican Sen. Richard Shelby said he won't run for a seventh term on Monday. He is the chamber's fourth most senior member and has spent more than 40 years in Washington as a representative and senator.

Shelby's absence will open up a seat for a possible crowded GOP primary, but he stressed he still has work to do before he is gone.
