Rep. Congressman, Steve Daines could run for U.S. Senate
BOZEMAN, Mont. -

NBC Montana is continuing to follow up on who might run for U.S. Senate next year.

We learned a number of high-profile Montana Democrats have already said they will not enter the race.

However, Republican Rep. Steve Daines told us he is still considering a run. Daines made it clear he is staying focused on his current agenda. We caught up with him at the Best Western Plus Grantree Inn off 7th Avenue in Bozeman, where he was attending the 8th Annual Economic Outlook Seminar.

"We're taking a look at that race, but we're staying focused on doing the job I got sent to do," said Daines.

State Sen. Corey Stapleton and State Rep. Champ Edmunds have yet to declare. Both Stapleton and Edmunds are Republicans.
