My assumption is that he said he was exploring a run, and then all the relevant people he'd have wanted to appeal to immediately let him know that they weren't going to support him. So then he had to back out.
And almost certainly part of that conversation was about his mid to long term political future, whether as a Libertarian or not.

No. That is not what happened. Justin has been "exploring" the possibility of running for a year now. And then the day before yesterday (appx.) he declared his candidacy, publicly stating that he would seek the nomination of the LP. He made this declaration after prolonged and careful consideration, consultation, and calculation. Then something, or someones, made him change his mind.

How long did Firefly last in your timeline? Because here in Universe B, Amash formed an exploratory committee like a month ago, and wisely dissolved the committee yesterday without ever declaring his candidacy.

Is there some official government form he didn't check a box on? Because when you participate in LIbertarian Party of Kentucky Presidential Debates: the Finale!, you have declared your candidacy.

That's actually probably what made the decision for him. He thought to himself "y'know, I can come back from the whole Trump thing, but squaring off against a guy with a boot on his head? That's a career killer."

You should watch the debate. Vermin Supreme took the boot off, cleaned up, and suited up for the debate. Represented himself quite well IMHO.
