|Description||Arizona state Rep. Bill Konopnicki (R) is again weighing whether to get into the state's 1st congressional district race, according to the Arizona Capitol Times. |
Konopnicki was the one who got away last cycle, as the GOP put up almost no fight and lost a Republican-held seat to now-Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick (D-Ariz.).
Konopnicki said he isn't interested in serving in Congress unless Republicans take back the majority in the 2010 elections–something that will be difficult to predict in time to mount a serious campaign.
"I'm not interested, quite honestly, in going and being the minority party," he said.
