His answer: Hes focused on getting accomplished what he can before his term ends in 2017.
Nixon, re-elected in 2012, is barred by law from seeking a third term as governor.
The AP reported that Nixon also said he was pleased that the question wasnt greeted with laughter. But again, he didnt say yes or no.
Later Thursday, Oren Shur, Nixons former campaign manager, said the governor would support Hillary Clinton if she runs.
But if the former first lady doesnt? Then, just maybe, it could be Iowa, Here I Come.
