LANSING, Mich. — Former Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm says her name will not be on the ballot to fill departing senator Carl Levin’s seat.

Granholm had been considered a possible canidate for the vacated democrat’s seat, but was resistant on running ever since Levin announced he was not in favor of re-election for 2014.

Granholm posted on her Facebook page that there were several reason why running for senate would not be right for her family just yet.

There are no more specifics on her reasonings.

Other democrats considering running for the vacated spot, include a longtime activist Debbie Dingell.

Congressman Gary Peters is also interested in running.

Earlier this month, there was speculation that Mitt Romney’s brother Scott might run for Levin’s position.

      Mr. "Stupid," what is an OPPS? While I was not a fan of the Canadian, I would hardly call her a Token Female. I'll bet she knows how to spell oops.

    1. I'll believe it when it doesn't happen (she denied she was running for Gov. when she was AG, too.)
    2. What does "just yet" mean, Jenny??
    3. Debbie Dingell=Michigan's version of Connie Corleone.

    Great headline! "Granholm Declines to Fill Levin's Seat" 1st, the seat does not "belong" to Carl Levin, this Senate seat belongs to the people of the state of Michigan. 2nd, the writer implies that Ms. Granholm could just "accept" it and be our Senator? Great Journalism.
