Northampton County's top cop says he won't be looking for a new job in the new year.

EASTON, Pa. -

Northampton County's top cop says he won't be looking for a new job in the new year.

District Attorney John Morganelli had been considering running for Pennsylvania lieutenant governor in 2014, but he said Monday that he's thought it over and you can count him out.

"The demands of my job in 2014 makes mounting another statewide campaign difficult," Morganelli said. "I look forward to my responsibilities here in Northampton County and I intend to complete the two years left on my current term as district attorney."

Morganelli was the Democratic nominee for state attorney general in 2008.
