Long Beach police chief won't run for LA sheriff

LONG BEACH, Calif. (AP) - Long Beach police Chief Jim McDonnell, a former high-ranking Los Angeles police official, will not run for Los Angeles County sheriff next year.

McDonnell had been considering challenging Sheriff Lee Baca, who will be seeking a fifth term.

McDonnell told the Los Angeles Times on Tuesday that he made his decision after thinking over the time it would take away from his family and duties in Long Beach while competing with an incumbent for campaign donations.
