NBC News has confirmed through sources that Kyl, the No. 2 in the GOP Senate leadership, will announce his retirement at a press conference today from Phoenix.

The Arizona Republic adds:

Kyl was first elected to the Senate in 1994.
Early in his Senate career, Kyl generally was overshadowed by the better known and more senior Sen. John McCain, his GOP colleague from Arizona who was emerging as a major national figure.

But as Senate minority whip, Kyl is the No. 2 Republican senator and one of the highest-ranking Arizonans to ever serve on Capitol

Arizona Republican Sen. Jon Kyl will not run for re-election in 2012, reports The Washington Post.

He is the fifth senator to announce his retirement next year. Independent Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman, Texas Republican Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchinson, Democratic North Dakota Sen. Kent Conrad and Virginia Democratic Sen. Jim Webb have all said they will not seek re-election.

Kyl is the Senate Minority Whip and a key member of the GOP leadership. He was originally elected to the Senate during the “Republican Revolution” of 1994
