George Allen: No Intention To Run For Office Again

Posted: Updated:

SUFFOLK, Va.  - Republican George Allen says he's run his last political campaign.
    
The cowboy-booted namesake son of a legendary pro football coach who helped spawn the largest GOP resurgence since Reconstruction in Virginia with his election as governor in 1993 told media outlets that he's retiring.
    
After a crushing loss to Democrat Tim Kaine a week ago, Allen says he has "no intention of running for office again."
    
Allen was running for the Senate seat he fumbled away in 2006 in an upset loss to Democratic newcomer Jim Webb.
    
Republican Gov. Bob McDonnell voiced disappointment Tuesday at the report of Allen's exit from elective politics.
