Gentle Ben Goes Gently

Cornhusker Sen. announces his retirement Tuesday in a web video, telling his constituents “it is time to move on.”

Nelson: “There’s 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 elected office, spend more time with my family and look for new ways to serve our state and nation.”

Watch the video above.
