Conrad: 'That's my decision' not to run, Senator 'flattered' by Facebook appeal, but says his Senate service will end next year

Email

FARGO -- Sen. Kent Conrad said Tuesday he's "flattered" by a Facebook appeal urging him to seek another term, but it won't change his plans to retire from the Senate.

"I announced in January that I would not be seeking re-election next year, and that's my decision," he said during a stop in Fargo.

In that announcement, Conrad, D-N.D., said he didn't want to be distracted from working to relieve the nation's debt problem and its dependence on foreign oil.
