Tom Perriello NOT to run for Governor in 2013

In a statement released earlier today, former Congressman Tom Perriello has said he will not be running for the Democratic nomination for Governor in 2013:

I have considered a run for Governor, and am genuinely touched by the outpouring of support. I do not feel called to serve in elected office at this time, but I do not need to have my name on the ballot to be part of the fight.

Perriello spent less space in his statement saying no as he did attacking Republicans and Ken Cuccinelli directly while endorsing Terry MacAuliffe’s run for the nomination. The full statement is available on The Huffington Post.
