No, one or the other.
Paul Ryan ran for Vice President AND Congress at the same time, losing the former but winning the latter.
Agreed. Go all in or go home.
Why? Please don’t say because its not fair. :-)
So...a senator should resign if he runs for POTUS? That would be fine with me but...
The rules need to be consistent. Why should McCain be able to run for POTUS as Senator but Paul has to choose just because his term ends in a Presidential year election?
A politician who wants his cake and eat it, too. Color me shocked...zzzzz.
Seriously, if I made it to the Senate, I wouldn’t want any other gig. All that power and all those perksand hundreds of other people in both houses to blame your failures on. Just another face in the crowd. Who happens to be a sitting Senator.
It’s no wonder that McCain fought harder to keep his Senate seat than he did for the White House. Bet ol’ Hillary is wishing for those halcyon, carefree days of yore as the junior Senator from New York!
