Steve Henry announced he will not seek the office of governor.
He says the office has been tarnished and that would have been used against him.
Henry was referring to the scandal of Govenor Patton's extramarital affair.
He indicated he would run for public office again but wouldn't say which one.
Henry is the first lieutenant governor in 40 years to neither ascend to the governorship or use the office to run for governor.
