Dan Watkins, a real estate attorney who was an adviser to President Obama’s presidential campaign in Kansas, said he is no longer interested in becoming Kansas’ U.S. Attorney, The Associated Press reported. Watkins previously declined to endorse reports that he had been recommended to become the district’s next top prosecutor.
Watkins told The AP that the more he considered the position the more he wanted to stay in his current job. “I think it fits best for me to keep doing what I’m doing,” Watkins told The Lawrence Journal-World. He added, “I like what I’m doing.”
