Popular former Gov. Brian Schweitzer said Saturday morning that he will not run for Montana's open U.S. Senate seat in 2014, an announcement that complicates Democratic efforts to retain their majority in next year's elections.

Too much of MSNBC is saying the Democrats are always right and Republicans are always wrong," he said. "When the Democrats have it wrong, I'll say it and when the Republicans have it wrong, I'll say it."
