DENVER (AP) -- Former Colorado Speaker of the House Andrew Romanoff says he won't run for Congress in the 6th District even though new congressional lines make it more favorable to Democrats.

Romanoff told The Associated Press on Tuesday that he won't launch a campaign to challenge Rep. Joe Miklosi for the Democratic nomination there. The seat is held by Republican Rep. Mike Coffman.

Romanoff's decision ends weeks of speculation about whether he would enter the race. Romanoff said he's gotten hundreds of calls and emails from people around Colorado urging him to run but he says it's not the right time.

Romanoff lost to Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet last year in a primary.
