Thune Getting Closer to Decision on White House Run

Senator John Thune (R-SD) is “getting closer to making a final decision about running” for president in 2012, KELOLAND TV reports.

Thune says any presidential ambitions he may be entertaining are on the back-burner as he travels South Dakota discussing the economy and the federal deficit.

“We’re very focused on that right now. But obviously, I’m going to have to make a final decision here in the not-too-distant future,” Thune said.

While Thune isn’t setting any deadlines, he says a decision to run may come within 30 to 60 days.

“If you’re going to be a candidate, you pretty much have to be getting out there, particularly for somebody like me who’s not known. A lot of the candidates are well known,” Thune said.
