Ben Higgins isn’t going into politics anytime soon.

The Bachelor star, who had fans buzzing when he setup a website where anyone could donate to his possible campaign, announced Friday that he won’t be running for public office in Colorado.

“I regret that I must withdraw my candidacy. Despite my best efforts to pursue this opportunity in good faith, I recently received information that has made such a pursuit unworkable. Due to unforeseen circumstances, I will not be able to move forward as a candidate,” he said in a statement. “I find solace in knowing that our intentions and actions have been fair and sincere. I entered into this endeavor wanting to bring positive change to my community, and it is with that same spirit that I will move forward, albeit on a different path.”
