Former Iowa governor Chet Culver says he won't run for elected office this year.

The Democrat released a statement Wednesday saying people have encouraged him to run for office, but he's decided not to be a candidate in 2014.

Culver served two terms as secretary of state and a single term as governor before losing his re-election bid to Terry Branstad in 2010.

Some thought Culver might seek the Democratic nomination for the 3rd Congressional District representing the southwest part of the state after incumbent Republican Rep. Tom Latham announced he would retire.
