Rep. Dianne Byrum says, despite speculation to the contrary, she is not interested in running for Secretary of State after her term in the Michigan House ends this year. Byrum says "You never slam the door" but she is not preparing, lobbying, or campaigning for the right to challenge GOP incumbent Terri Lynn Land.

On another front however for the first time Rep. Mike Murphy reveals he is "exploring" the possibility of running for the Michigan State University Board of Trustees. He has not made a final decision but says his thinking is "tipping" in that direction.
