Jim Webb to decide on 2016 run by end of month

Jun 15, 2015, 3:24 PM

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Jim Webb says he knows it’s time to make a decision on running for president.

The former Virginia senator said Monday he expects to make a decision on a 2016 Democratic bid by the end of the month. Webb is on a three-day tour through Iowa.

Webb says he’s assessing if he can raise enough money because he doesn’t want to run just “a protest campaign.” He says he’s got a different record to offer than the other Democratic hopefuls, thanks to his work in the Senate on issues like criminal justice and foreign policy.

Webb says Iowa is a key state where he can connect with voters.
