Rep. Mike Pence (IN) won't run for president in 2012

From the Los Angeles Times:

Though he stopped short of a formal announcement, Pence strongly suggested that he will instead seek the governorship of Indiana next year.

"In the choice between seeking national office and serving Indiana in some capacity, we choose Indiana," Pence told supporters in an e-mail message sent Thursday afternoon. "We will not seek the Republican nomination for president in 2012."

Pence gave up his post in the House Republican leadership this year, a move seen as setting the stage for a potential run. He had already made waters-testing visits to Iowa and New Hampshire, the two states that lead off the presidential nominating process.

He coulda been a contender. I have now removed him from the GOP field page, and replaced his entry in this month's poll with "Other."

Choose Our President 2012
