House Speaker Hammett Won't Run for Governor

Hammett is serving his third term as speaker and his eighth term
in the Alabama House. He had said previously that he was
considering making a run for the Democratic nomination for governor
in 2010.

Hammett released a statement through his office Friday that he
wants to concentrate his energies on representing the people of his
south Alabama district and on his duties as speaker.

Hammett did not immediately say if he plans to run for
re-election to his House seat next year or for a fourth term as
speaker.
