Vander Platts Will Not Run for Senate

"After weeks of buzz that he'd be the firecracker to reconfigure the U.S. Senate race in Iowa, religious conservative Bob Vander Plaats has decided not to run, citing a focus on his message of national spiritual revival," the Des Moines Register reports.

"His decision -- sure to disappoint both the far right and far left -- has been awaited for months as Republicans try mightily to find a candidate with the best chances of taking away a powerful seat that has been in Democratic hands for nearly 30 years."
