U.S. Sen. Olympia Snowe, a three-term Republican from Maine and a staunch advocate for the marine industry, said Tuesday she will not run for re-election, citing excessive partisanship in the Senate.

“To this day, I remain deeply passionate about public service, and I cherish the opportunity I have been given for nearly four decades to help improve the lives of my fellow Mainers,” Snowe said in a statement.
