Libertarian Lucas Overby will not run for a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives in November.

“After great thought and deliberation, I have made the decision to not run in the November election for Florida’s 13th Congressional District,” Overby said in a press release.

“Running for the United States House of Representatives has been one of the greatest honors in my life, the support I received and the hard work and dedication so many put behind me have been humbling beyond words.

“However, I made the decision to run for office with my family in mind, I completed the race with them fortifying my heart, and upon completion of the Special Election it was the most important thing for me to take stock of them while making the decision for November. My family, my beautiful wife Ashley and my amazing little daughter Raegan, are the absolute center of my universe, and the timing is simply just not there for us to do it again so soon.”

Overby said he had accepted positions with the Libertarian Party of Florida to help develop candidates. He said he would be working with other candidates, building single issues legislative campaigns, and “continuing forward with many amazing groups to further the causes of liberty, justice, and equality for all.”

“I will also be dedicating more time to reopening the Martin Luther King Jr Clearwater Community Center and fighting to build our neighborhood towards a stronger future for our children,” he said. “Again, thank you to everyone who put their faith in me, who dedicated their time and treasure to my campaign, and everyone who stood up against insurmountable odds with me. This is far from my last fight and this is not the last time my name will appear on a ballot.”
