Perriello Will Not Run for Virginia Governor in 2013

Posted:

Former 5th District Congressman Tom Perriello says he is not running for Governor of Virginia.

Perriello released a statement today on Twitter saying he won't be on the ballot in 2013, but he will be in the fight. His statement goes further to say that he does not feel that call to serve in elected office right now.

Perriello would have been running against Terry McAuliffe for the Democratic nomination, who he is now backing.

Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli is running for Virginia Governor from the Republican side.

In his statement, Perriello says that he believes Cuccinelli's beliefs would be devastating to the Commonwealth.
