A trio of Montana Democrats who belong to the same family have declined to run for the state's open Senate seat, leaving their party on the hunt for a candidate to replace the retiring Sen. Max Baucus (D).

Former congressman Pat Williams; his wife, former state senator Carol Williams; and their daughter Whitney Williams told Lee newspapers Monday that they will not run for the Senate or House in 2014.
