Gov. Spellings, fmr. Sen. Myers to not run for president

Governor Bertram Spellings and former Senator Sadie Myers, both Civic Party members from District 3, are refraining from tossing their hat in the presidential ring in deference to fellow District 3 politician Patrick Newsom.

Spellings was considered a potential candidate following his recent reelection to the governorship in the midterms. However, following Senator Newsom’s announcement, he reportedly decided against a run due to his close friendship with Newsom.

Likewise, Myers decided against a run against her former colleague, stating that “Patrick is my friend, and Patrick is best suited to be president. If there’s a way to help him get there, I’m ready to help.”

Both Spellings and Myers are still able to be picked as a VP candidate for the eventual nominee. Unlike the Liberty Party and Labor Party, the Civic Party nominee for president selects their own vice presidential candidate rather than electing them through a primary process.
