Gov. Blunt Says He Lost His Sense of Mission

Gov. Matt Blunt says he simply lost his sense of mission. That's the best, and essentially only, explanation he is providing for why he will not seek re-election this year.

Watch my KY3 News @ Noon report from Jefferson City HERE.

Blunt insists he could have won if he had decided to run. And the Republican governor says criticism over Medicaid cuts and alleged e-mail destructions in his office had nothing to do with his exit from politics.

At a Capitol news conference Wednesday, Blunt declared he was "absolutely at peace" with his decision and has no intention of resigning before his term ends January 2009.
