Former GOP Rep. J.C.Watts, who's considering a bid for RNC chair, talks to Lloyd Grove about the genesis of his possible run for the gig and when he'll make a final decision.
He says he started considering his options three weeks ago after receiving a letter from “a trusted friend,” and will make a decision in the next week or so.
“It was a three-page letter encouraging me to run for the RNC and telling me why I should run,” he says. “I thought about it for six or seven minutes and then went on about my business. Since then, it’s kind of taken on a life of its own.”
