Meg Whitman: I’m Probably Done with Politics

It looks like former eBay CEO Meg Whitman’s first foray into politics will be her last, Politico reports. She was the Republican candidate for governor in California last year, losing to Democrat Jerry Brown by 13 percentage points.

Asked Wednesday on Fox Business Network if she’ll run for office again Whitman responded, “I doubt it.” Talk had emerged that Whitman might run for Senate against Democrat Dianne Feinstein next year, but she has said no.

Instead Whitman says she’s involved in public service outside electoral politics. “I’m back in business working on some not-for-profit initiatives. I joined the board of Teach for America and our local charter school here,” she said. “So that’s where I’m going to put my efforts.”
