Matt Jones will not run for a seat in the US Senate from Kentucky next year, WKYT reports. Jones made the announcement on Kentucky Sports Radio, which he owns and founded on Friday morning. Jones was shortly after the Kentucky Republican Party filed an off-show complaint with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) accusing Jones of breaking regulations by accepting campaign submissions from companies. Just last week he said he was about to give up, but then wondered whether he would wait for the governor election result.

Having previously said he hopes another Democrat will step into the ring if he doesn’t want to run, he says he hopes to beat McConnell.

Just last week he said he was on the verge of giving up, but then reconsidered that he would wait for the governor election result. It sure was no if Bevin won, but he said he would think about it if Beshear got the lead.
