Former U.S. Senator Carte Goodwin says he will not run in 2014 when former colleague and senior Senator Jay Rockefeller retires.
Goodwin told the Associated Press that he has ruled out seeking either that seat or the West Virginia congressional seat of Representative Shelley Moore Capito. The 2nd District Republican announced earlier that she plans to run for U.S. Senate in 2014.
Goodwin's decision removes a leading contender in the Democratic quest to recruit candidates for these two races.
Goodwin says working in Washington, D.C. and seeing his wife and their two young children only on weekends doesn't appeal to him at this time.
Goodwin served in the Senate in 2010 following the death of Senator Robert C. Byrd. The 38-year-old was appointed in 2011 to a commission studying U.S. trade relations with China.
