Andy Card has released the following statement:
“After careful consideration, I have decided not to become a candidate for the U. S. Senate. Over the past few days, the encouragement and support from so many friends for me to run has been overwhelming. I am heartened and grateful. But ultimately, the decision is what I believe to be in the best interest of my family. Now is not the right time for me to enter a political race.
In these critical times, I know that Massachusetts would be well served to have Senator Scott Brown as the Commonwealth’s next United States Senator. He has my full support.”
