Why Chuck E. isn't running

Picked this up from Bob Novak's Saturday column, re: why Senator Chuck E. Schumer (D-New York) will not run for governor in 2006:
Actually, Schumer may have been most influenced by a Federal Election Commission (FEC) opinion that barred him from spending on a campaign for governor any of the funds he raised for his easy Senate re-election. Of his $27 million in Senate campaign funds, the most recent FEC report shows $13.8 million not spent.
He further argues that New York's Democrat Attorney General Elliot Spitzer, who is running for New York governor in '06, could be using it as "preliminary to a future run for president."
