Political Future

Gene has openly stated he is open to running for political office again in 2016 after his 2014 defeat. This has led to speculations about what he may intend on running for. Many believe he should run for his old state senate or run for a state house seat. Others have urged the former state senator to run for higher office either for Congress or at the state level.
