DescriptionJEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) -- - Former state treasurer Sarah Steelman said she will not run for public office next year, ending months of speculation that she was considering a bid for the U.S. Senate or House.

Steelman, a Republican from Rolla who once said she was leaning toward running for Senate, released a statement late Tuesday saying she struggled with her decision but ultimately chose not to run because she wants to raise her youngest son in Missouri. Her two oldest sons are in college.

"I love serving the public, I really do," Steelman told The Associated Press on Wednesday. "I'm still interested in doing that, but not this time around, because I'm more interested in making sure I don't miss a single minute or moment of my youngest son's life."
