Written by 

John GeorgesJohn Georges has decided not to run for Governor of the State of Louisiana.

According to Georges, the decision was made today.

Earlier this week, Bayoubuzz reported that due to positive poll results, he was seriously considering running for that position against Governor Bobby Jindal. 

He made the announcement on his Facebook page.

The Facebook page statement said:

"I have given the race for governor serious consideration and although our polling shows i would be able to give governor jindal a tough race, there is simply not enough time to organize a statewide campaign. I want to thanks all those who encouraged me to run for governor again. I believe i will be in a bettor position in four years. In the meantime i plan to continue to do my part by investing in Louisiana to create more jobs and supporting so many worthwhile causes in the communitly."
