Of Gov run in '14, Block Says He's Trying to "Figure it All Out"
Moderate Party founder Ken Block, who's had a winning week in the news cycle, says he's still thinking about a possible gubernatorial run in 2014. He got 6.5 percent of vote in a four-way field in 2010.
"I'm just trying to figure it all out," Block said during a taping of RIPR's Bonus Q+A.
The full segment -- covering his fraud and waste report, the master lever, and why more businessmen don't become politically active, among other topics -- airs Friday at 6:40 and 8:40 a.m.
Block says he's still in assessment mode on a future campaign:
"I don't do it unless there's a way to win this race. And I'm trying to figure out if it's possible to do that and raise the money to be successful."
Block also joined us for Political Roundtable, airing at 5:40 and 7:40 am Friday, in which we discuss his report, the state Senate's "Move the Needle" effort, the Board of Elections, and the ethics legislation dispute between House Speaker Gordon Fox and Representative J. Patrick O'Neill.
