YPSILANTI, Mich. (AP) — Ypsilanti cardiologist Rob Steele isn't running for the U.S. Senate seat opening with the retirement of Democrat Carl Levin next year.
The conservative Steele said Friday he can't be a full-time physician and still find time to run a statewide campaign.
Steele's decision, which wasn't unexpected, still leaves former Secretary of State Terri Lynn Land as the lone Republican candidate. The lone Democrat running is U.S. Rep. Gary Peters.
Steele has had backing from tea party supporters. He unsuccessfully ran against Democratic Rep. John Dingell in 2010 and for the University of Michigan Board of Regents in 2012.
