On her Facebook page, Floreen explained how she reached her decision.

“I am extremely grateful for the outpouring of support I received as I considered this opportunity,” Floreen said. “But, at the end of the day, while I am convinced I could win and could raise the money necessary for such a run, I do not want to condemn myself to the lifetime of fundraising a member of Congress must endure.”

Floreen also noted how much she enjoys serving the residents of Montgomery County.

“It is a great honor to serve my community of over one million people on the County Council, and I believe I can accomplish more here than at any other level of public service,” she said.
