Ross won’t make a gubernatorial bid

U.S. Rep. Mike Ross surprised Arkansas Monday with the announcement that he will not be running for governor in 2014 as had been widely anticipated.

Ross, who is in his final term representing the fourth congressional district, said he would instead be joining Little Rock-based Southwest Power Pool as senior vice president of governmental affairs and public relations, according to Arkansas News.

Though when he announced in July 2011 he would retire from the House to consider a gubernatorial run, Ross said after spending time with his family he was able to make the decision that there is “life after politics,” according to a release.
