Schweitzer: I’m Not Running for Anything
Election 2012
Despite all the speculation about Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer’s future plans, the governor told the Havre Daily News over the weekend that he will not run for another office in 2012.

Schweitzer, who is term-limited after next year, is largely considered the most popular Democrat in the state and it “has become a favorite guessing game in Capitol hallways and political circles” about what he might do next. But in an interview with the Daily News, the governor said he would leave public office:

“It shouldn't surprise anybody that l’d just go right back to private industry, in business, like I did before,” he said.

Schweitzer said that, once he is out of office, he expects he will have a little more time to spend fishing, and a little more time to spend at his Whitefish-area ranch.

“If the price of bred cows goes down just a little, maybe we'll get back in the cow business,” he added.
