Jenny Sanford Will Not Run for Congress

Former South Carolina first lady Jenny Sanford said she will not run for Congress, USA Today reports.

Said Sanford: "I think my job as mom right now is much more important, much more rewarding and much more productive. The idea of killing myself to run for a seat for the privilege of serving in a dysfunctional body under John Boehner when I have an eighth-grader at home just really doesn't make sense to me."

The AP notes had she run, it likely would have set up a race between her and her ex-husband, former Gov. Mark Sanford.
