The number of Democrats interested in running for Alabama governor is shrinking.

Alabama Chief Justice Sue Bell Cobb , who had expressed interested in running for the seat being vacated by term-limited Republican Gov. Bob Riley , told local media outlets last week that she will remain on the job in the state’s court system.  

“I am honored to have been sought out and encouraged to run for governor by so many Alabamians from all walks of life,” Cobb said in a prepared statement. “Their support has been humbling and perhaps made this decision the most difficult I have ever been called upon to make.”
