Bielat Won't Run for US Senate Seat

Nofolk state representative Dan Winslow and Cohasset businessman Gabriel Gomez are the only declared Republican candidates for the U.S. Senate.

There will be one less candidate in the race in the Massachusetts special Senate election to replace Secretary of State John Kerry.

Republican Sean Bielat said Wednesday, while he thought he could run a strong campaign, that the timing wasn't right for running this time, according to an Associated Press report.

Previously, he had run twice for Congress against Barney Frank and Joe Kennedy III, who he lost to in November. Norfolk state representative Dan Winslow is a candidate for the Republican nomination as is Cohasset businessman Gabriel Gomez. Former US Attorney Michael Sullivan is considering running.

Bielat sought donations to run this weekend and filed a statement of candidacy with the Federal Election Commission.

To bad and the Kennedys' just keep reproducing like roaches. Given the tone of this decade it probably is a wise decision, unlike Romney's who deserted his successful governors post to run for president, left us at the mercy of the democrats only to lose the election twice! Way to go Mitt and don't go to far Sean I and many will support you when you decide to run.
