Congressman Connie Mack laid rumors to rest Thursday: He will not run for the U.S. Senate in 2010.
The Florida Republican, in a letter to Gov. Charlie Crist, said he intends to seek re-election to the U.S. House of Representatives.
"Dear Charlie," Mack wrote. "Based on ongoing press speculation, I know that you are giving serious consideration to the question of whether to seek re-election, or whether to instead seek election to the United States Senate.
"As you contemplate this decision, I want to let you know that I have decided not seek election to the U.S. Senate in 2010, and that I will instead seek re-election to the U.S. House of Representatives."
Mack goes on to say he will support the governor in whatever decision he might make concerning his own political path.
