After months of will-he-or-won’t-he speculation – and on the heels of the Republican victory on tax reform, and effort that he helped supervise and lead – Utah Senator and Senate Finance Committee Chairman Orrin Hatch said Tuesday that he will retire when his term ends at the end of this year. Hatch, who as the longest serving Republican member of the Senate also served as President Pro Tempore, had been expected to decide by the end of 2017.

His decision to step aside leaves an opening for former Massachusetts Gov. and Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney to run for Hatch’s soon-to-be-vacant seat. Hatch was first elected to the senate in 1976 on a promise to campaign for legislative term limits.
