Former Congressman Mark Foley will not run

Mark Foley will announce in a few minutes that he will not be a candidate for West Palm Beach mayor.

The former Republican congressman met with his family over the weekend to make a final decision on whether to enter the March race to replace term-limited Democratic Mayor Lois Frankel.

The announcement will be made during his radio show - Foley on Politics - which airs starting at 6 p.m. on Seaview 960 am.  You can also listen to the hour-long program live online at

Political observers in West Palm Beach said Foley would be the frontrunner if he ran for mayor against several lesser known candidates.

Despite Foley's humiliating resignation from Congress in 2006, Foley has been warmly received by many in his hometown who encouraged him to run for mayor.
