Sen. John Thune turns down a run for president in 2012

South Dakota Sen. John Thune has informed family and friends that he has decided not to seek the Republican nomination for president in 2012.

The message, which was subsequently posted to Thune’s website and Facebook page Tuesday, is signed by the Senator and his wife, Kimberley.

For months now, my wife Kimberley and I have received encouragement from family, friends, colleagues, and supporters from across South Dakota and the country to run for the presidency of the United States. We have appreciated hearing their concerns about where the country is headed and their hopes for a new direction.

During this time, Kimberley and I and our two daughters have given a great deal of thought to how we might best serve South Dakota and our nation. That process has involved lots of prayer.

Along the way, we have been reminded of the importance of being in the arena, of being in the fight. And make no mistake that during this period of fiscal crisis and economic uncertainty there is a fight for the future direction of America. There is a battle to be waged over what kind of country we are going to leave our children and grandchildren and that battle is happening now in Washington, not two years from now. So at this time, I feel that I am best positioned to fight for America’s future here in the trenches of the United States Senate.

I want to thank those who have encouraged us and prayed for us during the past several months. We are forever grateful for all the support.

John and Kimberley

Just a week ago, Thune had said that his decision regarding the 2012 contests would come sooner rather than later. He promised that if he chose to enter the race that he would do so as a contender, and not as some test balloon for 2016.
