The JT watch

No, this isn’t about Justin Timberlake.  It’s about John Thune, the Republican senator from South Dakota who may run for president in 2012.  Thune was very, very close to Iowa today.  He visited North Sioux City, South Dakota, and a Sioux City Journal reporter was there.  From the SCJ story:

…Asked by the Journal if he was on a presidential exploratory trip, Thune observed, “We haven’t crossed the border yet.” And so, if we see him in Iowa does that means he is running? He didn’t answer that one.

Later, after an audience member asked if he is a candidate, he said, “We haven’t made any decision yet. I think these are really, really challenging times. I think we need the common sense solutions that come out of the Midwest.”
