Orrin Hatch is retiting

WASHINGTON — Republican Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah says he will not seek re-election after serving more than 40 years in the U.S. Senate.

“When the president visited Utah last month, he said I was a fighter,” the 83-year-old said in a video message announcing his retirement. “I’ve always been a fighter. I was an amateur boxer in my youth and I’ve brought that fighting spirit with me to Washington. But every good fighter knows when to hang up the gloves.”

He added: “For me, that time is soon approaching.”
