Ben Affleck rules out Massachusetts Senate run


Affleck rules out Massachusetts Senate run

(CNN) – Ben Affleck won’t run to be the next U.S. senator from Massachusetts.

The actor and director on Monday put an end to the rumors that he might throw his hat in the ring to replace Sen. John Kerry if he is confirmed as secretary of state, saying he plans to advocate for his causes from outside the upper chamber.

"I love Massachusetts and our political process, but I am not running for office,” he wrote in a Facebook post.

“We are about to get a great Secretary of State and there are some phenomenal candidates in Massachusetts for his Senate seat. I look forward to an amazing campaign,” he posted.
