PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — Maine’s U.S. Sen. Olympia Snowe says she’s not running for re-election.

The three-term senator’s campaign office issued a statement Tuesday afternoon that was confirmed by her campaign manager. The Republican senator said in the statement that she was confident she would’ve won re-election but said she was frustrated by “an atmosphere of polarization and “my way or the highway ideologies.”

Snowe has served 33 years in Congress.
