New Mexico Democratic Sen. Tom Udall announced that he will not seek reelection in 2020, forgoing the chance for a third term.

'The worst thing anyone in public office can do is believe the office belongs to them, rather than to the people they represent,” the 70-year-old Udall said in a statement on Monday. “That’s why I’m announcing today that I won’t be seeking re-election next year.” 

Udall, 70, insisted that he is “not retiring” and that he would “find new ways to serve New Mexico and our country after I finish this term.”

He also said that by foregoing a campaign for a third term in office, he was freeing himself up to work on legislative matters.

“Without the distraction of another campaign, I can get so much more done to help reverse the damage done to our planet, end the scourge of war, and to stop this president’s assault on our democracy and our communities,” Udall said.
