DescriptionSeven-term U.S. Rep. Roy Blunt has placed himself among Republicans weighing possible 2010 campaigns to succeed Sen. Kit Bond, who will retire after four terms.

Blunt, a former two-term secretary of state, was among the first Republicans mentioned as potential candidates after Bond, 69, stunned the Missouri GOP earlier this month by announcing he would not seek a fifth term.

"I wasn't considering the Senate at all as an option for me a month ago," Blunt said Friday, praising Bond as a "great Missouri senator ... who was always fighting for Missouri."

"I'd be really happy if he was running for the Senate again, but he's not. And I'm seriously looking at it. And that's really as far as I can go, because that's where I am.
