MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Sofia Vergara's fiance Nick Loeb is ending speculation about a possible political run.
The Republican businessman and the star of ABC's hit comedy "Modern Family" held a news conference Thursday at the Sagamore Hotel in Miami Beach to say Loeb won't run next year.
He is still recovering from getting hit by a car last year. The accident shattered his pelvis.
Loeb had been eying Democratic Florida Sen. Bill Nelson's seat. Loeb previously ran for the Florida state Senate but eventually dropped out as he dealt with his pending divorce.
