Jonathan Jackson told ABC7 he is not running for the congressional seat vacated by his brother Jesse Jackson Jr.

Jackson said he was considering the seat but decided against it.

Jackson Jr. resigned in November, citing ongoing treatment for bipolar disorder.

On Saturday, Democratic Party leaders heard from those interested in the seat, but could not decide on a single candidate to support.

More than a dozen contenders are eyeing the seat.
