Read between the lines

After Sen. Dave Thompson (R-Lakeville) suffered a tough defeat in the 2014 GOP endorsement contest for Minnesota governor, some wondered aloud if he really had the desire to continue in politics. Thompson is definitely one of the good ones, a principled and unapologetic conservative in a state where so few can be elected.

With the MN state senate up for reelection in 2016, the speculation hasn't died down over whether or not Thompson will endure another election cycle.

This tweet he put out Wednesday has me leaning towards the sentiment that  he's not running again.

Rarely are sitting politicians this...uh...."off color" if there is something like reelection at stake.
