ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A Minnesota-based executive with the parent company of Fox News has decided not to run as a Republican against U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar next year.

Bill Guidera is an attorney and a senior vice president with News Corporation, and has been a prolific fundraiser for the Minnesota Republican Party. He decided several months ago not to challenge Democrat Klobuchar, but reconsidered in recent weeks after further encouragement from some party leaders.

Guidera says Monday he has decided for sure to stay out of the race.

Three Republicans are in the race. But former legislator Dan Severson, St. Bonifacius city councilman Joe Arwood, and St. Paul resident Anthony Hernandez have yet to demonstrate much strength in their fundraising.

Klobuchar already has about $4 million in her campaign fund.
