Archer won’t make bid for governor

Dennis Archer, former Detroit mayor, former Michigan Supreme Court justice, former president of the American Bar Association and current chairman of Dickinson Wright PLLC, says he doesn’t want to be the next governor of Michigan.

The 68-year-old Democrat told The Associated Press on Thursday that he is “not a candidate and will not be a candidate.”

He was mentioned as a possible candidate after Lt. Gov. John Cherry said Tuesday he would abandon his bid for governor.

Archer says he is “very happy” in his private life and his professional one as a lawyer in Detroit and “is not prepared to give that up again to become a public servant.”
