T 2 Cassius Dio, Roman History

...and he [M. Porcius Cato (126)] sought the consulship against them [C. Iulius Caesar (121) and Cn. Pompeius Magnus (111)], because as a private citizen he would have no power [to intervene]; he was, however, suspected of doing something like this by their adherents and was not appointed. [3] Instead, Marcus Marcellus and Sulpicius Rufus [Ser. Sulpicius Rufus (118)] were chosen, the one on account of his acquaintance with the law, the other for his ability as an orator, also because, even if they did not employ money or any violent action, they yet showed great deference and exhortation to all, whereas Cato did not pay court to any of them.
