CITADEL Talk WJR-A/DETROIT host FRANK BECKMANN will not be making a run for the U.S. Senate in 2012. The DETROIT NEWS reports that BECKMANN told listeners TUESDAY that he will not challenge incumbent Sen. DEBBIE STABENOW (D-MI) for the seat, a run which would have required him to come off the air to avoid triggering equal time requirements.
"I gave it serious thought," BECKMANN told the NEWS. "I got a ton of encouragement to do it, which was a little bit surprising to me. I kept coming back to the reality," he said. "I love what I'm doing so much. I would have to give up so much and risk so much."
