Or, so he says, right now.
The OWH reports that Ashford has said he is interested in keeping his seat in the legislature. He will move up in seniority, and believes he can do as much good for Omaha in the Uni as being Mayor (hmm…).
But Ashford says that Hal Daub announcing his run did not influence his decision. “It’s not a Hal thing,” said Ashford. Well, Hal at least influenced him to announce his decision. So Hal was involved a little.
But lets remember that Ashford could pretty much change his mind at any time between now and, say February 2009.
But with Ashford announcing this, it definitely adds intrigue to the 2009 race.
