From the Hollywood Reporter:

Former Sen. Jeff Flake has landed as a CBS News contributor and announced on air on Tuesday that he will not run for president in 2020. Flake was spotted at the network’s New York City headquarters on Jan. 4 amid talks for a role, The Hollywood Reporter reported at the time.

That role was formally announced on CBS This Morning on Tuesday during a segment about his future ambitions. A moderate Republican who left his U.S. Senate seat earlier this month, Flake was considered a potential Republican challenger to President Trump in 2020.

“I’ve always said that I do hope there is a Republican who challenges President Trump,” he said. “That will not be me.”
