It’s been just over one week since Melinda Gopher announced that she would not be running for the House this cycle. Instead, she plans on challenging Sen. Baucus in 2016. For someone who habitually changes political ambitions, it came as a shock to see that her plans have stayed intact for over a week.
Two and a half years is a long time and leaves plenty of time for someone like Melinda Gopher to decide they’d rather run for Governor or maybe the House, again. Who knows?
As reported earlier, don’t hold your breath waiting for a Baucus v. Gopher showdown.
