Another potential Republican candidate has bowed out of next year's U.S. Senate race in Michigan.

The Gongwer News Service says Oakland County District Judge Kimberly Small has decided not to enter the race for the seat now held by retiring Democrat Carl Levin. That leaves former Michigan secretary of state Terri Lynn Land as the only announced GOP candidate.

Two other Republicans, including Congressman Justin Amash of Grand Rapids, are still thinking about running.
