On my long commute home at the start of this holiday weekend, I did an interview with Hugh Hewitt, who asked as he always does if I am thinking of running for president next year.
I said “No.”
It was the end of a long week for Joe and during his commute home, he was asked in an interview whether he was considering running for president next year.
The question came from radio talk show host Hugh Hewitt, who also asked whether he would want Florida Senator Marco Rubio’s seat in 2016. The answer to both questions was no.
But Joe did admit if he was to run, it would be in Florida and it would make more sense in 2018 than 2016.
It’s funny how fast news travels.
The Washington Post’s Erik Wemple then wrote to Joe to ask whether he was actually serious about running.
Joe emailed back with a no, explaining that he’s contracted with NBC until 2019 and that “if I ever get back into public service, I suspect it’s at least a decade away, and I doubt I will even then”.
But that probably won’t stop Hewitt from continuing to ask the question.
