Chauncey Goss, who’s been considering another bid for Congress, said Monday he will not be a candidate in the race to replace former Republican U.S. Rep. Trey Radel.
Goss, a Sanibel resident, said he has too many business obligations---a former U.S. House budget staffer, he has his own consulting business that helps clients with federal budget issues---and family considerations to join the race for Congress.
Goss has children a few years away from college, and said that his responsibility to his family takes first priority over the commitment needed to serve as a representative in Washington, D.C.
He also said he’s still interested in public service, and would not close the door on running for another seat or at some other time.
Goss finished second to Radel in the 2012 Republican primary.
