Private Equity Exec. Senor Demurs On Senate Bid

Mar 26 2010 | 4:04am ET

Alternative investments executive Dan Senor has chosen not to seek a seat in the U.S. Senate from New York.

The co-founder of hedge fund Rosemont Capital and private equity firm Rosemont Solebury Capital Management had been mulling a run against incumbent Sen. Kirstin Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) as a Republican. But he said that “this wasn’t the right time in my family and business life for me to run.” Senor is married to CNN anchor Campbell Brown, with whom he has two young children.

Senor worked for the Carlyle Group between 2001 and 2003. He then joined the George W. Bush administration, eventually as chief spokesman for the Coalition Provisional Authority after the fall of Baghdad in 2003. He left Iraq in 2004.

At Rosemont Solebury, Senor handles the firm’s client relationships.
