Gov. Sebelius drops out of Cabinet consideration
"I believe it is important to continue my service as governor," Sebelius said in a brief statement.
Sebelius said she had asked to have her name removed from consideration, but spokeswoman Nicole Corcoran declined to provide more details. Sebelius had been mentioned most often as a potential secretary of energy, education or labor.
She also was one of four finalists for the No. 2 spot on the Democratic ticket this summer, before Obama chose Delaware Sen. Joe Biden as his vice presidential choice.
"The possibility of joining President-elect Obama's team is exciting and compelling, but my service to the citizens who elected me is my top priority in these difficult times," Sebelius said in her statement.
She also described being governor as "a job that I love," a statement she has made repeatedly in the past.
