QOTD: Jim Jordan on US Senate Run

From a Marion Star interview

Q: Are you going to run for the U.S. Senate next year?

A:No, I don't think so. I mean, look, maybe it if was a couple years on down the road. I just talked about family. We have four children, and our youngest has one more year of high school. And I know the nature of campaigns because I've been in tough campaigns before. ... I just know how hard you have to work to win. I just know what you got to do in a state of 11 million people in a nationalized race, go raise money all over the country, go to 88 counties. I'm going to miss his senior year, and I don't think it's the right thing to do as a dad.
Doesn't sound like a guy waiting for the "right moment" to announce to me...
