MSNBC host Ed Schultz said he isn’t running for Sen. Byron Dorgan’s North Dakota U.S. Senate seat, TVNewser reports.
Dorgan said earlier this week that he won’t run for another term, and Schultz said he had been contacted by Democratic leadership and asked to run.
On MSNBC’s "Morning Joe," Schultz said: "I won’t say no to anything. Am I running for Senate? No. I’m not. I’m not running for Senate." He added: "I was cast into this without even thinking about it. And I’m expected to come up with an answer in 24 hours?"
