Senator Vinehout statement on not running for governor this year

ALMA --- “After careful consideration I have decided not to run for Governor this year.”

“The severity of the injury received in the car accident last month -- a splintering of the bone in my upper right arm – and the time required to recover and rehabilitate make it impossible for me to run the intense, grass roots campaign that I want to run and would be necessary to win.”

“I have many thanks to give to all the individuals across the state who have encouraged me to run and offered their support in countless ways. I will continue to work supporting the grassroots efforts of so many. The vision we share for our state and our communities will not fade.

“I wish success to Mary Burke and others who may offer their time and talents in leading our state.”
