There is much more that needs to be done to keep America strong. And while I relish the opportunity to undertake the work that lies ahead, I also feel it's time for me to step away from elective office, spend more time with my family, and look for new ways to serve our state and nation. Therefore I'm announcing today that I will not seek reelection. Simply put, it's time to move on.

Earl Benjamin "Ben" Nelson (born May 17, 1941) is the senior U.S. Senator from Nebraska. A Democrat, he was elected to the U.S. Senate in 2000. Nelson entered politics in 1990, when he was elected the 37th Governor of Nebraska. He was easily re-elected in 1994 with 74% of the vote. Nelson ran for an open seat in the U.S. Senate in 1996, losing to Republican Chuck Hagel, and left the Governor's office in January 1999 due to term limits, after serving two full terms. Nelson was elected to the U.S. Senate in the 2000 election after incumbent Bob Kerrey retired.
