LEE COUNTY, Fla.- Michael Dreikorn has decided that he will not run for the District 19 Congressional seat this fall.

Dreikorn finished in fourth place in last week's special Republican primary election and vowed to run again, but Dreikorn explained today that he doesn't feel he can be successful against winner, Curt Clawson.

Dreikorn said he will run for another office this August, but he's not revealing the details just yet.
