Schundler says State Senate not in his plans

Former Jersey City Mayor Bret Schundler says he has no plans to run for State Senate in the 31st district. There has been considerable speculation that the 2001 Republican candidate for Governor would run for Joe Doria's Senate seat, where Democrats could face a divisive primary to replace him. Schundler's first bid for public office was for this Senate seat sixteen years ago; his near upset against incumbent Edward O'Connor helped propel him to a victory in his 1992 bid for Mayor.
