This suggests the former majority leader will be leaving office before the November election in which McDonald, a Republican, will try to win Bruno's seat. Bruno announced he wouldn't run for re-election two weeks ago, surprising many and giving the Democrats a chance to possibly win over the State Senate. Bruno has repeatedly said his decision has nothing to do with the FBI investigation into his finances.
