AP: Rep. Everett on running for governor

WASHINGTON (AP) - Retiring Alabama congressman Terry Everett says he won't run for governor in 2010.

The Rehobeth Republican had said in July that he was considering a bid.

But he ruled it out in an interview Tuesday with The Associated Press.

Instead, he said he wants to stay involved in the military and space issues that he has focused on during 16 years in Congress.

Everett, 71, announced his retirement last year, in part citing health problems.

Outgoing Montgomery Mayor Bobby Bright, a Democrat, won his seat in last month's elections.

If he had run for governor, Everett would have joined what is expected to be a crowded Republican field of contenders to succeed Republican Bob Riley, who has served two terms and can't run for a third.
