Susan Collins won't run for Maine governor's seat

Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, announced Friday that she will not run for governor in her home state and will remain in the Senate.

Collins made the announcement at a speech before the local chamber of commerce event in Maine Friday morning.

"I have concluded that the best way that I can contribute to these priorities is to remain a member of the United States Senate."

"As I thought about this senator's words, I realized how much remains to be done in a divided and troubled Washington if we are to serve the people of our states," Collins said.

"I am a congenital optimist, and I continue to believe that Congress can, and will, be more productive," she said before announcing her decision to remain.
