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

He said his decision is because of 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 said he expected to be "fully involved in continuing to help conservative candidates for office" after his recovery is complete.

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

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