Senator Cushing said he will not seek re-election

AUGUSTA - A local senator who resigned from a leadership position amid controversy said he will not seek re-election.

Senator Andre Cushing of Newport said he plans to focus his attention on his family and other personal matters.

 

Cushing faced stiff fines last year for violating campaign finance laws.

 

He eventually stepped down as the assistant majority leader in the republican controlled senate.
