Not quite the "you won't have Randy Graf to Kick Around" speech I'd hoped for

But it is close:

Graf says '08 run for CD8 not very likely

A day after losing his bid for Congress, Republican Randy Graf said Wednesday he doesn't intend to run for the Congressional District 8 seat two years from now.

"I'm never going to say never to anything, but at this time, I don't see that as a likely possibility."

So, he won't run for Congress in two years! That is very good news for the Republicans, who hope they can find someone with a broader appeal. So, is he done with politics... Hardly:

"Let's just say there is a strong chance I'll remain involved in politics," he said. He wouldn't say whether or not that involved running for office.

Without a doubt, he will run for office. His ego won't let him be just a behind the scenes politician. Maybe he will try and return to the state legislature in two years. If McCain decides to forgo running for re-election to the Senate in '08 to focus on running for president, I could see him taking a shot at that. He could always go back to running for school board.

As much as we hate his politics, admit it, it would be fun to see him run again and screw up the Republican primary!

Maybe he just likes to run and golf
does not require much of it.
