(Harrisburg) -- Former Congressman Joe Sestak tells The Associated Press that he won't run for governor next year but instead is strongly considering making a second bid for the US Senate in 2016 against Republican Senator Pat Toomey.
In an interview today, Sestak told AP the US Senate is racked by a lack of trust and "careening from crisis to crisis."
The former Navy vice admiral says he believes his skills would be most useful in the Senate instead of the governor's office.
Sestak beat Republican-turned-Democrat Arlen Specter in the 2010 Democratic primary but narrowly lost to Toomey in the general election.
Sestak says he will "fully support" whomever the Democratic Party selects to challenge Governor Corbett.
