Avenatti cites family in deciding not to run for president in '20
Celebrity lawyer Michael Avenatti, who was arrested three weeks ago on suspicion of domestic violence, announced Tuesday that he will not seek the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020.
In a statement on Twitter, the attorney for porn actress Stormy Daniels said it was at his family's request that he was declining to join the race.
"But for their concerns," he said, "I would run."
Avenatti, who is in the midst of divorcing his second wife, has three children.
