Bob Dole will travel to Iowa next month to test the waters on a potential 2016 presidential run.
“Don’t call it a comeback, I’ve been here for years,” the former Kansas senator and 1996 Republican presidential nominee told The Daily Caller in an exclusive interview from his Washington, D.C. condo, quoting the rap artist LL Cool J. “I may not be as active as I once was, but I’ve never hung up my political hat. I’ve just been patiently looking for the right opportunity to engage.”
At 90, Dole would be by far the oldest presidential candidate in American history. But the World War II-hero dismisses such concerns.
“Abraham lived to 175. Moses lived to 120. The way I see it, I’m just getting started,” Dole explained.
