Christie Vilsack won't run for U.S. Senate


DES MOINES (KWWL) - Christie Vilsack says she will not run for the U.S. Senate in 2010.

In a statement to the Des Moines Register, the former Iowa first lady says she's flattered by the requests from Democrats, Independents and even some Republicans to consider running against Senator Charles Grassley next year, but she will not be a candidate.

Vilsack says she will continue to serve Iowa.
She says she'll still be active in the Democratic party and will continue to work with the Iowa Initiative to Prevent Unintendend Pregnancy.
