Nope, Smith’s not running for governor

There's been some chatter that Gordon Smith, who was the Republican senator from Oregon until he was defeated last year for re-election, might try a comeback in a run for governor.

Not gonna happen: He has just been named president and CEO of the National Association of Broadcasters.

You can figure, for one thing, that naming a former senator (who doesn't have any specific professional background in broadcasting) to that job has a lot to do with congressional action.
