Guy Cecil, said to be a leading contender to manage a would-be 2016 presidential campaign for former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, has dropped out of the running.

Mr. Cecil, the outgoing executive director of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC), plans to help her in a non-campaign capacity.

“I have spent time with Secretary Clinton encouraging her to run because I believe our country needs her vision and leadership,” Mr. Cecilsaid in a statement to Politico, which first reported the news. “I have offered her my full support and will be her most vocal volunteer, but after 10 years of some of the toughest campaigns around, I am eager to try my hand at something new and to serve my country in a different way. Even better, I will finally get to take a long delayed honeymoon with my husband.”

Another leading contender for the job is Robby Mook, who managed Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe’s successful 2013 campaign.
