Democratc Sen. Patrick Leahy of Vermont, the most senior member of the Senate, said Monday he will not seek reelection in 2022 to the seat he has held for eight terms.
Leahy, 81, said he and his wife, Marcelle, have concluded that â€œit is time to pass the torch to the next Vermonter who will carry on this work for our great state. Itâ€™s time to come home.”
The announcement marks the end of a political era. First elected to the Senate in 1974, Leahy is the last of the so-called Watergate babies who were elected after President Richard Nixonâ€™s resignation. During his nearly half-century in the Senate, Vermont shifted from one of the most solidly Republican states in the country to one of its most progressive.
