Arizona GOP Sen. Jon Kyl’s lofty status as Senate Republican whip makes his decision of whether to run for re-election in 2012 a particularly important one. But Kyl is keeping his cards close to his vest, Politico reports
“There are few signs on the ground that he is gearing up for a fourth term. Kyl has not yet activated his political organization, and he hasn’t initiated major fundraising efforts. Kyl reported just $620,000 in cash on hand in his campaign fund at the end of September, according to Federal Election Commission records,” the news service states. “But GOP senators and party operatives caution that Kyl would easily win if he runs and could very quickly raise the millions of dollars he would need.”
Kyl refuses to discuss his thinking in public. “When I make my announcement, you’ll be the second to know,” he said this week when asked for comment.
