Former Sen. Pressler considers another Senate bid

PIERRE, S.D. (AP) -- Former Sen. Larry Pressler says he is considering running again for the U.S. Senate, this time as an independent. The 71-year-old Pressler served three Senate terms as a Republican from 1979 to 1997.

He lost a 1996 re-election bid to Democrat Tim Johnson, who is not seeking re-election next year after also serving three terms. Pressler says there's less than a 50-50 chance he will run for the Senate next year.

But he says if he does run, he wants to do it as an independent because that would give him a chance to end the gridlock between Republicans and Democrats in Congress. Four Republicans, one Democrat and one Libertarian are already running for the Senate seat.
