In New Jersey, Kean Says He Won't Run

Addressing speculation yesterday, former New Jersey Gov. Thomas Kean (R) "told state Republican leaders today that he has no interest in running for Governor in a November 2004 Special Election," PoliticsNJ.com reports.

"Kean's refusal leaves businessman Douglas Forrester as the front-runner for the still hypothetical contest for the '04 Republican gubernatorial nomination... Former Jersey City Mayor Bret Schundler, an active candidate for the '05 nomination, is not viewed as having enough party support to win a small establishment nominating process."
