Has Gupta Taken Himself Out of Running for SG Position?

gupta_3-5.jpgOn January 6, CNN as well as several other news outlets reported correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta was considering taking President Barack Obama up on his offer to become the new Surgeon General. The saga has continued for almost two months, and a new report says it may not be happening.

Foxnews.com reports that Jerry Farrell, who runs the Commissioned Officers Association, says “Gupta is no longer in contention…it’s more he’s withdrawing himself.”

“A spokeswoman for CNN had no comment on Gupta’s standing, and Farrell said he has not spoken with Gupta personally,” reports Foxnews.com’s Judson Berger.

Update: It’s confirmed — Gupta will not be Surgeon General.
