Kraske: Sanders Says No Statewide Run in 2016

KC Star:

Mike Sanders, the three-term Jackson County executive, said today he will not seek statewide office next year.

Sanders, 48, was seen as one of the Democratic Party’s best prospects to run for one of four statewide offices that Democrats are vacating.

“I have no interest in seeking statewide office in 2016,” Sanders told The Buzz. “I’m clearly not saying `no’ forever. It’s `no’ for right now. It’s a very personal decision and driven by family considerations.”

Sanders and his wife have two boys, 11 and 8.

“They’re not going to be 11 and 8 forever,” he said. “These days go fast. For now, I’m aware of the fact that they still want Dad around. Dad’s still cool. The most fun I have professionally and privately is hanging out with my kids.”
