Thune Not Running For President

February 22, 2011, 11:02 AM

Thune Not Running For President
SIOUX FALLS, SD - Senator John Thune has announced that he is not going to run for President.

Thune was elected as a senator from South Dakota in 2004; before that, he served as the state's lone U.S. House Representative after being elected in 1996. Thune now serves as the chairman of the Senate Republican Policy Committee, the fourth-ranking Republican position in the Senate. He's become so popular and powerful that no Democrat challenged his re-election this past November.

Thune made the announcement on his Facebook page Tuesday morning.
