Campbell considers run for Colorado governor

Retired Sen. Ben Nighthorse Campbell (R-Colorado) said he will make a decision on whether to run for governor of Colorado within a couple of months.

Campbell said he'd "have to give up a lot" to consider coming out of semi-retirement. But he said he was being courted by Republicans to run for office.

Campbell left the Senate in 2004 after more than two decades of public service. He is working as an Indian affairs adviser for the Holland & Knight law and lobbying firm.

He is back in Washington, D.C., this weekend for the National Museum of the American Indian powwow. He will lead the grand entry on Saturday.
