Former Republican Rep. Heather Wilson will not run for New Mexico governor in 2010.

Wilson announced her decision in an e-mail to supporters sent Thursday, the New Mexico Independent reported.

Wilson cited her work in the private sector and personal time with family as deterrents to running for office this cycle. And she added that “the Governor of New Mexico has no significant national security role — an issue area that continues to be an important part of my life.”
