From The Los Angeles Times:
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Former Minnesota Sen. Norm Coleman says his family voted 3-1 against him running for governor, so he will not join the race.
Coleman’s decision comes in the wake of his bruising Senate loss to former “Saturday Night Live” comedian Al Franken.
He says he reached the decision during a family dinner Friday night.
Coleman says he believes he could have won a Republican primary for governor, and that he’s not endorsing any Republican candidate for now.
The former St. Paul mayor says he is putting together a think tank and policy institute in Washington.
In other words, he’s on the market for a job as a lobbyist.
