BATON ROUGE - A state representative who was considering running for the U.S. Senate has decided against it.

Republican State Rep. Alan Seabaugh of Shreveport is endorsing Republican Congressman Bill Cassidy in the 2014 race against Democrat Mary Landrieu.

Seabaugh's decision helps clear the Republcian side of the race for Cassidy.

But other GOP lawmakers are still looking at the race, and Cassidy also is facing tea party contender Rob Maness.

Seabaugh says he decided not to run because Cassidy proved to be a strong conservative by voting against reopening the government and raising the debt ceiling.

He urged other Republicans to unite behind Cassidy and defeat Landrieu.
