Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee (D) announced Wednesday he would not seek reelection in 2014.
Chafee made the announcement outside the state Department of Motor Vehicles at a news conference.
Chafee switched his party registration to Democrat from Independent in May in an apparent effort to help his reelection chances amid low approval ratings. Previously, he served as a Republican senator.
Two Democrats, State General Treasurer Gina Raimondo and Providence Mayor Angel Taveras, are mulling runs for governor in 2014. Cranston Mayor Allan Fung, a Republican, is also considering a run.
