October 04, 2003|From Times Wire Reports

Former Atlanta Mayor Andrew Young has ruled out a run for the U.S. Senate, sending Democrats scrambling for a strong candidate for the seat being vacated by retiring Democratic Sen. Zell Miller.

Young said he would not enjoy the "partisan atmosphere" in Washington.

"Winning would mean I would spend the next seven years of my life in Washington, and Washington is not always the center of action," he said.
