(CNN) – Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour reiterated his pledge to help Republican gubernatorial candidates until very end, telling CNN Chief National Correspondent John King on Monday that he will start to think about a potential 2012 presidential run only after Tuesday’s election results come in.
“I’ve said from the very beginning, I wasn’t gonna do anything about anything except governors’ races through tomorrow. We can’t wait ’til 2012 to start taking our country back,” the Republican Governors Association (RGA) chairman said.
The RGA head has been extremely active this election cycle, raising money and campaigning for Republican gubernatorial candidates across the country. But Barbour has made no bones about his own future political ambitions.
