ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota state lawmaker involved in a rest-stop sexual encounter with a 17-year-old boy says he won't run for re-election after all.

Rep. Kerry Gauthier (GAHTH'-ee-ehr) told The Associated Press on Wednesday that he made the decision on his own after multiple conversations with Democratic leaders who urged him to drop out. Gauthier had said earlier in the day that he would not drop out.
