Sullivan won’t be a GOP candidate for governor

Business owner and Republican National Committeeman Brian Sullivan has decided against running for governor, again. Sullivan had reportedly been reconsidering a gubernatorial bid. But today he issued this statement:

In June, I announced that I would not run for governor in 2010. However, in the following months, I received many requests from Republican activists to reconsider that decision. As a result, two weeks ago I asked some friends to sound out the opinions of party leaders about the possibility of my candidacy and to understand the challenges of a late entry into the race. Though I received much gratifying encouragement to run, I concluded that my business obligations would prevent me from dedicating the time needed to run an effective campaign. Accordingly, I will not reconsider my previous decision, and I will not be a candidate for governor next year. I am optimistic about Republican prospects to keep the governorship, and I look forward to supporting the party’s endorsed candidate.”
