Barbour says he’ll decide about 2012 run after the Nov. election

Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour (R) on Wednesday said he’d decide whether to run for president after the November election.

Barbour, a GOP insider often mentioned as a candidate to challenge President Obama in 2012, didn’t rule out the possibility, but said he hasn’t seriously contemplated a presidential run.

“I’m not giving serious thought to running for president until after the November election,” Barbour said at a breakfast sponsored by The Christian Science Monitor.
