Putting to rest rumors about his future plans, state Sen. Eliot Shapleigh told the El Paso Times today that he plans not to run for any elective office in 2010.
The Rio Grande Guardian reported via Twitter that Shapleigh plans to devote himself to helping former Houston Mayor Bill White win the Texas gubernatorial race.
Shapleigh didn't return phone calls from The Texas Tribune this afternoon. If we hear more, we'll let you know.
