A reliable source told me this morning that he probably is. Apparently he has been sending out fundraising letters with signed copies of this magazine. It’s speculation at this point, but I would love to see a copy of the supposed letter.
It could also be a ploy. I don’t understand fully how fundraising works, but I think(?) if you have a campaign fund you can use that fund to run for other offices. There has been discussion that Mike may be pursuing running for Governor. What’s stopping him from switching gears next year?
