Rep. John Dingell, D-Mich., says is wife, Debbie, is considering a run for the U.S. Senate, The Hill reports.

Debbie Dingell has been laying groundwork for a run, and the possibility of her seeking a Senate seat has been talked about for weeks, The Hill notes, but her husbands’ comments on Wednesday were the first time anyone close to her have confirmed she may seek the office.

"She's getting lots of offers of support, and some of them are from folks who are fairly high-placed in the system. She's also getting a lot of support from ordinary citizens. She is at this time making up her mind," Dingell was reported as saying.

Debbie Dingell is a former member of the Democratic National Convention and has long been active in Michigan state politics. She began considering a Senate run when Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich., announced in March he was retiring when his current term expires.

Rep. Gary Peters, D-Mich., also has expressed interest in Levin’s seat.

Though Peters was criticized by some for acting too quickly, Dingell told The Hill neither he nor his wife had any ill feelings toward him.
