Nevada Senator John Ensign has arrived in Iowa and just completed his tour of Trans Ova Genetics in Sioux Center Iowa.
When asked by Fox News’ Carl Cameron if he was running for President, Sen. Ensign said “no.” Cameron followed up by asking, “You are in Iowa, the leadoff caucus state, are you thinking about running for President? Ensign said, “No.”
So why is Senator Ensign in Iowa? To help find candidates, help the Republican Party to deliver a message of personal responsibility, limited government, and a better America. “Our party needs voices like that now more than ever,” Ensign concluded.
Ensign didn’t absolutely rule out a run for President. He said, “I’m saying I’m focused on being a Senator, and lending my voice as a leading conservative. Our party needs it and I hope I can help.
Iowans are used to hearing candidates tell us that they are not running for President only to see them make it official six or eight months before the caucuses.
