Riley says he won’t run for Congress again if he loses in November

Oct 4, 2012

Michael Riley, the Republican challenging Congressman Jim Langevin in CD2, says he’ll be a one-and-done congressional candidate if he doesn’t win in November.

Speaking during a taping today of RIPR’s Political Roundtable, Riley was asked if he’ll run again if his bid to unseat Langevin comes up short. His response:

“No, absolutely not. The reason I’m running now is because of the fragile nature of the [US] economy.”

You can hear Political Roundtable on Friday at 5:40 and 7:40 a.m. Riley also joined us for Bonus Q+A, airing Friday at 6:40 and 8:40 a.m.

I’ll have further excerpts tomorrow from our conversations with Riley.
