Sen. John Thune (R-SD) has been weighing the pros and cons of a White House bid in 2012. Now, he tells the National Review he is in the "final stages" of the decision-making process.
Said Thune: "It is a gut-level decision. We are getting closer to making it."
He added: "The reason you do it is that you really believe that the future is now. I believe that."
