Trent Lott for governor, 2019?

Is he considering such a run?

“I wouldn’t put it that way,” Lott said, laughing. “Some people have suggested I ought to look at that … I probably laughed and didn’t say no … In politics, if you don’t deny it flat out and stomp your feet and cuss, then you must be running.”

OK. I didn’t hear any stomping or cussing. So, is he considering such a run?

“I have a wife who thinks that I did my time and we should just keep doing what we’re doing now … It’s not time now anyway, not this year or the next year or the next … We’ll see what time does … I learned a long time ago, never say ‘No.’ You never know what the good Lord puts in front of you … I doubt that it would happen.”
