Salmon Considering Arizona Senate Run

February 22, 2011

Rep. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) may see a familiar face in his Republican Senate primary: the man he succeeded in Congress, former Rep. Matt Salmon (R).

Salmon tells Arizona political publication "Yellow Sheet Report" (subscriber) that he is seriously considering launching a bid for the seat being vacated by retiring Sen. Jon Kyl (R) and has begun making calls to gauge support.

Salmon served in Congress in Arizona's first congressional district during the mid-nineties. He stepped down after a third term and Flake was elected to his seat in 2000. Salmon ran for governor in 2002, losing a close race to now Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano. He later served as chair of the state Republican party.

Salmon expects to finalize a decision in the next few months.
