PHOENIX — Tom Morrissey has announced that he won't seek a second term as chairman of the Arizona Republican Party.

He says his decision is due to upcoming knee surgeries that will likely require a lengthy recovery period.

Morrissey's term will end when the party's State Committee meets Jan. 26 and elects the chairman, secretary and treasurer.

In a statement issued Wednesday, Morrissey says he expects to be "fully involved in continuing to help conservative candidates for office" after his recovery is complete.

Morrissey says he's proud of the numerous things the GOP has accomplished under his leadership.

He says that for the first time in Arizona's history, Republicans hold all statewide offices and majorities in the Legislature.
