Governor Heineman says he had another conversation with his wife, Sally Ganem Tuesday night about the possibility of running for the Senate and he says they are getting very close to a decision. He says they will keep “working through it” as this isn’t a decision that can be made overnight.
Heneman would be consider the front-runner in the Republian primary if he chooses to run.
Sen. Mike Johanns, a Republican, has decided to step down in 2014 and not seek re-election.
