He had to think about it which tells me the folks in Utah made the correct choice.

There was some amount of decency left in him. I hope he enjoys his retirement.
I guess he’s smarter than he appears to be.

Thats shocking, because usually when a politician says they will make an announcement on whether they are running or not, it means they have already decided to run.

No,I don't think it was 'decency' that led to that decision.
The fact that he even entertained the idea showed that he is power mad.
He just doesn't want to be embarrassed by losing in a general election.

I think it is clear the RNC wants to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. He pulled out so the R can lose and he can come back next time.
