McIntyre not saying no to Senate run

Video

Body

Senator Richard Burr continues to get heat for telling his wife to take money out of the bank at the height of last year’s banking crisis.

So far no one has challenged the Republican senator, but in a recent poll of nearly a thousand voters across the state, Congressman Mike McIntyre is just five points behind Burr in a hypothetical senate race. He’s the closest Democrat in the polling other than Attorney General Roy Cooper, who leads Burr by four points.

Good Morning Carolina’s Kevin Wuzzardo asked McIntyre this morning if the congressman is interested in the US Senate.

“You never say never to anything,” McIntyre said, “but I will tell you this, my job right now is the United States Congress. That’s what I’m working on. We’re already looking ahead to get ready for next year’s election to the US Congress, and that’s where my concentration is.”

McIntyre also said he believes the federal stimulus plan is working, but he says he still does not support any government bailouts for specific industries like last year’s auto and bank bailouts.
