Clinton Adviser Won’t Run For Senate Seat

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.
