Will Burr run for #2 Senate post?


NC Sen. Richard Burr could be a dark horse candidate for the number two job in the Senate, Politico is reporting.  Most of the attention has focused on TX Sen. John Cornyn, who has announced his intention to run for the Senate GOP whip job that is now held by AZ Sen. John Kyl, who will retire at the end of next year.  SD Sen. John Thune has also been giving some thought to the post.  But Burr, who serves as chief deputy whip, says he may also enter the race.  “I think I may run for whip, and I think that’s still very much in the cards,” Burr told Politico.  Via N & O
