Congressman Thad McCotter and Redeye guest not running for U.S. Senate

Is it something he said? No there are no amplifier hook ups in the United States Senate that can handle his Marshall Amplifiers

@ThadMcCotter make decision NOT to run for Senate – Timing, and District needs as reason #MIGOP #tcot

@ThadMcCotter probably one of the few that is actually concerned about the people he serves and not elections. #MIGOP #tcot

@ThadMcCotter or maybe McCotter found out there were no outlets in the Senate that wouldn’t trip when he plugged in his Marshall amplifier

Michigan Rep. Thad McCotter ended speculation about a possible U.S. Senate run Friday night, telling the Detroit Free-Press he was done “playing around like Hamlet.”

On Friday, he said his decision was largely based on timing.

He said he wasn’t ready to commit to running against Stabenow right now but that waiting — “playing around like Hamlet,” is how he put it — wouldn’t be fair to the potential candidates who might run.  Uncertainty about a McCotter campaign could hurt their efforts to gain ground in polls and raise money.

“That wouldn’t be cool,” said McCotter, who has been talked about in some conservative circles as an outside prospect to run for president.

The situation in Michigan has to be the most frustrating in the country for Republicans, who view second-term Sen. Debbie Stabenow as ripe for the picking but are struggling finding a candidate.
