Kentucky's 2nd District Congressman announced Tuesday that he will run not run for governor in 2015.
Republican Brett Guthrie of Bowling Green will instead seek re-election to the U.S. House.
“I am not running for any state office in 2015, although I was humbled by the number of people who asked me to run for Governor,” Guthrie said. “I went to Washington solve big problems and to leave a better America behind for the next generation. I’ve spent every day doing that and I feel that my time and energy is best spent on solving the big financial and economic problems we face as a nation,” Guthrie said.
Guthrie made his intentions known in a press release, which stated he has raised more than $1 million for his re-election campaign. Guthrie is currently in his third term in the U.S. House.
