State Senator Bill Ingebrigtsen, R-Alexandria, has decided against making a run for the governor’s office.

In a statement issued Thursday, Ingebrigtsen said he gave the idea serious consideration but the timing wasn’t right.

“Although I strongly feel that Minnesotans want a common sense conservative voice in the governor’s office, this is just not the right time for me to offer my service,” he said. “As a leader in the state Senate, I will continue to proudly serve the people of Minnesota in District 8 and work to regain a Republican majority in the next election cycle.”

Ingebrigtsen thanked those who offered him encouragement and a willingness to volunteer in a possible gubernatorial campaign. “Those wonderful folks and my family are the main reason why I serve in the Minnesota Senate,” he said.
