One of the leading candidates to manage Hillary Clinton’s expected campaign for U.S. president in 2016 has withdrawn from the running.

"I've been a part of some great campaigns and worked for terrific people, but want to explore other ways I can be of service," Guy Cecil said in an emailed statement.

Cecil, the political director of Clinton’s losing 2008 presidential race, was the executive director of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee for the past two election cycles. Democrats gained two seats in the 2012 election but lost control of the Senate in last month’s midterms.

His decision to stay out of a prospective Clinton campaign, reported earlier by Politico, will focus more attention on a trio of possible campaign managers.

They are Emily’s List President Stephanie Schriock; former Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Executive Director Robby Mook — who ran Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe’s campaign; and Ace Smith, a California political strategist who worked on Clinton’s 2008 campaign.

Clinton, the former U.S. secretary of state and first lady, has said she’ll announce a decision next year.

Cecil said he’ll assist her from the outside if she runs.

"There is no one better prepared to be our next president than Secretary Clinton, and I hope she runs," he said. "I will help however I can."
