Ben Affleck Officially Declines Run for Senate

Ben Affleck has spoken out about the many rumors floating around that he will be running for Senate.

“I love Massachusetts and our political process, but I am not running for office,” the 40-year-old actor wrote on Facebook. “Right now it’s a privilege to spend my time working with Eastern Congo Initiative (ECI), supporting our veterans, drawing attention to the great many who go hungry in the U.S. everyday and using filmmaking to entertain and foster discussion about issues like our relationship to Iran.”

“We are about to get a great Secretary of State and there are some phenomenal candidates in Massachusetts for his Senate seat. I look forward to an amazing campaign,” Ben added about Senator John Kerry‘s vacancy.
