"I simply couldn't walk into the office tomorrow and say excuse me folks, I'm leaving next week to begin a 10-month run for Governor so timing is everything in life and in politics and this timing simply didn't work."

Coleman also says it's too soon after his last Senate race and too late to get delegate support for a campaign, but he isn't ruling out a run for office in the future.
