What are they going to do? Force him to run? THey asked..he said no. His said his family did not want him to run. They did not want the BS that comes with a campaign and being in office. I can't blame them. It does hurt. He was a favorite...but if just because someone wants you to take a job does not mean you HAVE to take it. He has a family to think about. I can't fault him for saying no. I don't feel bad for the republican party. But then I don't feel bad for the democratic party either. I am sick of both.
