Murray won't run for Seattle mayor

State Sen. Ed Murray said Tuesday he would not run as a write-in candidate for Seattle mayor.

"While I am deeply concerned for the future of our city and Michael and I are honored to have been approached by so many people and organizations we admire and respect, I am also a realist: write-in campaigns are extremely difficult, and time is short," Murray said in a statement. "Also, the recognition yesterday that Referendum 71 will appear on the fall ballot galvanized my decision."

R-71 is an effort to overturn the state's new "everything but marriage" same sex domestic partner law. Murray has been a long-time advocate for gay rights.
