Shuler: “I will not be running for governor”

Since Gov. Bev Perdue announced last week that she wouldn’t run for a second term, speculation has run rampant that Rep. Heath Shuler might jump into the race.

Today, however, Shuler denied the rumors.

The brief announcement, from Shuler’s office, reads:

“I will not be running for governor of North Carolina in 2012. It is an honor to even be discussed as a potential candidate for such an esteemed office, but now is not my time.
