Republicans say Small is out of GOP race for Michigan U.S. Senate in 2014

Judge Kimberly Small
   Kimberly Small, 48th District Court judge in Bloomfield Hills, Mich., has opted not to run for the U.S. Senate.
  So says former Michigan Republican Party Chairman Saul Anuzis on the social media platform Facebook.
  Anuzis posted mid-morning Monday that Small has decided to stay focused on her job as a district judge.


  His information came from Paul Welday, political consultant, former Oakland County Republican Party chairman and a friend of Small.
  "As encouraged as she was by the outpouring of folks who wanted her to take a look at this, her focus has and continues to be the law," Anuzis quoted Welday as saying. "She wants to stay where she is for the time being."

  In the 2014 race to replace retiring U.S. Sen. Carl Levin so far are former Republican Michigan Secretary of State Terri Lynn Land and Bloomfield Township Democratic U.S. Rep. Gary Peters.
  There have been many rumored alternatives to Land since she announced she was running in June, but they've gradually considered and rejected the idea of a statewide campaign.
  The only two other Republicans out there that might still jump in are U.S. Rep. Justin Amash of Cascade Township, and former congressional candidate Rob Steele from Ypsilanti, says Anuzis.
