If anyone was hoping to see a rematch between former Rep. Chris Shays, R-Conn., and Rep. Jim Himes, D-Conn., it won't happen in 2012.
Himes, who beat Shays in 2008 in the southwestern Connecticut district, confirmed on C-SPAN's "Washington Journal" Friday that he was not considering a run to replace retiring Sen. Joe Lieberman, ID-Conn.
"No, I'm absolutely not looking at the Senate seat," said Himes.
The congressman had joined the rest of the Nutmeg State's House delegation in throwing his support to Rep. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., in March.
Shays, who served ten terms in the House, is reportedly gearing up to join the Senate race.
