The former Minnesota Governor and pro-wrestler tells CNN’s “Larry King Live” he has decided against entering the race between GOP incumbent Norm Coleman and challenger Al Franken, citing concern for his family’s privacy.

Adds it was an “agonizing decision” for him— “My children were attacked by the Minnesota media when I was governor. I fear very much that they will be attacked again.”
