“I think any time you run for office you should ask two sets of questions. One: What does the office need? What does the next occupant of that office have to do? And then you ask the question: Who am I, and what do I bring to the table that’s different from the others? And then you look for a match. And that’s a process that has led me to run for office before. You have to believe there’s a real unique fit. And a lot of that depends on the moment you’re in.”
