WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Roy Blunt (Mo.) released the following statement today after U.S. Senator Richard Shelby (Ala.) announced that he will not seek re-election to the Senate in 2022:

“Senator Shelby has been a fierce advocate for Alabama’s interests in the U.S. Senate. His more than four decades in Congress will have a lasting impact on the state. I’ve appreciated his leadership on the Appropriations Committee and support for our shared priorities, like investing in medical and engineering research at public universities, improving transportation infrastructure, and strengthening the military. These areas will have a tremendous benefit for Alabamians and all Americans. Abby and I wish him and Annette all the best in their next chapter.”
