Tom Daschle has decided not to seek the presidency in 2008:
“I've made a decision that I will not seek the presidency of the United States,” Daschle said.
He's spent decades representing South Dakota as a leader in the U.S. Senate. But after visits to key presidential primary states like Iowa and New Hampshire, Daschle says he won't seek a run for the White House.
“I've had a lot of encouragement and I've been very gratified to have the encouragement from within the state and around the country,” Daschle said.
Daschle's decision leaves 24 potential 2008 presidential candidates.
