Last month Rep. Knute Buehler (R-Bend) announced that he was considering a run for Oregon governor in 2016. As Oregon Catalyst reported, if Buehler and Brown were to win their party nominations, it would then be a rematch of the 2012 race for Oregon Secretary of State.

That rematch won’t happen – today Rep. Knute Buehler announced “I’ve decided I will run for re-election to the Oregon House and not run for Governor in 2016.” Rep. Buehler said that he made the decision after “several weeks of careful thought and conversations with family, friends and supporters.”
