BOSTON (CBS) – Congressman Michael Capuano announced Friday that he will not run for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Senator Scott Brown.

The Somerville Democrat said there’s already a field of good candidates, any of whom would serve Massachusetts well.

Capuano is planning to run for re-election to the House next year.

Here is the full text of his statement:

“After serious personal reflection, I have decided not to seek the United States Senate seat for Massachusetts at this time. There are several good candidates currently in the race and I am fully satisfied that any nominee from this group will represent Massachusetts effectively in the Senate. Thanks to everyone who has encouraged me to seek the Senate seat. I very much appreciate your support and your insight. I look forward to seeking re-election to the House in 2012.”
