No sen. ben af­fleck in the near fu­ture

Austin American-Statesman - - AUSTIN360 DAILY - Ben Af­fleck

BOS­TON — Ben Af­fleck is tak­ing his name off the list of pos­si­ble can­di­dates for U.S. Sen. John Kerry’s seat, which would be open if the Demo­cratic se­na­tor from Mas­sachusetts is con­firmed as sec­re­tary of state.

Af­fleck says in a Mon­day post­ing on his Face­book page that while he loves the po­lit­i­cal process, he will not be run­ning for pub­lic of­fice.

Spec­u­la­tion about the Cam­bridge, Mass., na­tive rose slightly when he did not com­pletely rule out a Se­nate bid dur­ing an ap­pear­ance on CBS’ “Face The Na­tion” on Sun­day.

Af­fleck says Kerry would make a great sec­re­tary of state.
