Interior Secretary Ken Salazar will reportedly be putting an end to some speculation that's arisen in the wake of Colorado Gov. Bill Ritter's decision not to seek reelection.

Salazar, who represented the state in the Senate until being appointed by President Obama, won't be running for the job either, the Washington Post's Chris Cillizzza reports. Instead, he'll endorse Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper, who's now the likely Democratic nominee.
