Burlington, Colo. (AP) A prominent Republican considered a candidate in 2010 has told supporters he doesn’t plan to seek office.

The Daily Sentinel newspaper reports that Mark Hillman has e-mailed supporters saying he will not seek office in 2010, not specifying which office.

Hillman was a state Senator for seven years, rising to become Republican leader in that chamber. He was also briefly State Treasurer from 2005 to 2006 when then-Treasurer Mike Coffman was deployed to serve in Iraq.

Hillman ran for a full term as state treasurer in 2006, but he lost to Democrat Cary Kennedy. The Burlington resident now maintains a conservative blog and is a working wheat farmer.
