Though Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval has been public about his support of presidential candidate Texas Gov. Rick Perry, he recently stated that he has no plans to leave his present job to run as Perry’s vice president.

“I am extremely honored that my name has come up but I love the job I have and I intend to keep it,” he said to the Associated Press.

Tuesday, the Republican governor announced his support of Perry, saying he believes him to be the best candidate to fix the U.S. economy. This endorsement had many wondering if he was looking to run alongside Perry, but he stated that he’s not interested and wished to remain in his current position.

“I am absolutely committed to serving out my term.”
