The Hill: Kirby Considering Senate Run

According to The Hill, former South Dakota Lt. Governor Steve Kirby is considering a run for the open U.S. Senate seat:
Former South Dakota Lt. Gov. Steve Kirby (R) said on Thursday he isn't ruling out a bid for retiring Sen. Tim Johnson's (D-S.D.) seat, but doesn't have a timeline for his decision.

"I have been contacted by a number of people and organizations around the country asking me to consider it," he said when asked whether he is keeping the door open to a run.

But he added that he isn't yet reaching out to people to ask for their support, and said he'd like to wait to see who jumps into the race before he decides.

"I'm not going to make the mistake of making any decisions before I know who the players are," he said.
