2014 run for U.S. Senate out for U.S. Rep. Tom Graves

Posted: Updated:

CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -- U.S. Rep. Tom Graves (R-Ranger, GA) issued a news release Monday that said he will not run for the U.S. Senate representing Georgia in 2014.

Graves said "The last several weeks have been a very exciting time for me and my family as we considered the opportunity to serve Georgia in the United States Senate. It has been an honor to receive so much support from Georgians and grassroots conservatives around the country, and I am confident that we would run a very competitive campaign. My decision rested on what would be best for my family, my district and the state of Georgia, and I have concluded that the right path for now is to forgo this Senate race and continue serving in my current role.
 
"After receiving so much encouragement to enter the race, I now know we are at the beginning of a long journey in Georgia state politics. I look forward to taking on a greater leadership role in our congressional delegation as many of our senior members enter the primary, and it is important for my supporters to know that I intend to continue preparing for future opportunities to serve Georgia."
