Heineman to consider Senate run

Posted: 02/19/13 09:20

Nebraska Gov. Dave Heineman says he'll consider a run for the U.S. Senate in the 2014 election, but it's too early to decide one way or the other. Heineman said Monday that a U.S. Senate seat was "the farthest thing from my mind" until he received word that Republican U.S. Sen. Mike Johanns wouldn't seek re-election. The Republican governor is leaving office in 2015 because of term limits. But he says he isn't yet sure he wants to embark on another statewide campaign, and he hasn't yet discussed it with his wife, Sally. Heineman says he could just easily see himself playing golf after he leaves office, or helping his son run his business.
