Speculation among most people I talk to suggests that Sen. Tim Johnson is maybe a little bit more likely to not seek reelection in 2014 than he is to run again.
But talking to the Sioux City Journal, South Dakota Democratic Party chairman Ben Nesselhuf suggests Johnson will be giving things another go:
"Everything I have seen indicates he is running. He is raising money, he is getting out and visiting every corner of the state. If the Democrats hold the (Senate) majority (beyond 2012), and he continues to be chairman of the banking committee, that would be a darn tough thing to walk from. Especially for South Dakota, that relies so heavily on the banking industry, to have him walk away from that, I think would be detrimental to the state potentially," Nesselhuf said.
What do readers think? Will Johnson go for his fourth term?
