Colorado congressman rejects bid for governor

Democratic congressman Ed Perlmutter says he won't jump into the Colorado governor's race.

Perlmutter says supporters asked him to run, but he loves his job representing Colorado's 7th District.

The Denver Post says Perlmutter disclosed his decision on Monday.

Others considering the race after incumbent Democratic Gov. Bill Ritter dropped out last week include Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper and former House Speaker Andrew Romanoff.
