Cuccinelli: ‘I Don’t Expect to’ Run for Senate Next Year

It has been just two weeks since he lost his bid for governor on November 5, but already rumors are flying about whether Ken Cuccinelli will run for Senate in 2014.

When asked Tuesday about his plans, he said, in no uncertain terms, he's not planning on it.

Mark Warner's campaign has been sending out fundraising emails over the past couple of weeks, saying "Ken Cuccinelli is wrong for Virginia…chip in five dollars now to support Mark Warner."

But Warner might need to find a new way to ask for contributions, because when NBC29 asked Cuccinelli after a press conference Tuesday morning in Richmond whether he would run for Senate next year he said, “No, I don’t expect to.”

Cuccinelli told the Washington Post in an interview this week he is enjoying spending more time with his family now that the campaign has wrapped up.

He did say it was tempting to run against Warner, and thinks he'll face some heat at the polls after the rocky rollout of Obamacare. But at this point, that looks like it will be someone else's fight next November.
