Fmr Sen. Coleman: Won't Run for Office in 2014

March 7, 2013 Updated Mar 7, 2013 at 11:59 PM CDT

St. Paul, MN (NNCNOW.com) - Former U.S. Senator Norm Coleman says he will not run for public office in 2014.

In a series of tweets Thursday, the Republican said he wants to "mentor a new generation of optimistic, limited government focused leaders who aren't afraid to find common ground to solve problems."

A second tweet continued, "will focus time and energy helping Minnesota elect a Senator and Governor who support free enterprise, efficient government and seek to bring folks together.

The former Senator lost a run in the 2008 elections to Sen. Al Franken following a recount that lasted several months.

Coleman's announcement means Sen. Franken will have no competition for the seat come 2014.
