Clinton adviser Mack McLarty, the former White House chief of staff, said Thursday he won’t enter the race to replace retiring U.S. Sen. David Pryor, D-Ark.
McLarty said he will remain counselor to the president and expects to be active in Clinton’s 1996 re-election campaign.
Pryor said last month he would not run for re-election.
McLarty, 48, had been considered a leading contender for his party’s nomination. Friends said he was flooded with telephone calls urging him to enter the race.
