Senate President Steve Sweeney said today he respects Sen. Dick Codey's decision not to run for governor and will have his own decision withiin a week.
"I went and spoke to Dick because I didn't put my personal interests first," Sweeney said by phone. "I asked him to look at it and he did. So I'm not going to be critical of his decision."
Asked what Codey's decision means to his own potential gubernatorial bid, Sweeney said he would have an answer by the end of the month. The Senate President would not let on which way he is leaning, saying only that he is doing his due diligence.
"By the 31st I think we'll have the focus on the party," Sweeney said.

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. It’s not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” - Nelson Mandela- Public Domain
