Burris Says He's Sticking Around

When he's not smack-talking Sen. Durbin, U.S. Sen. Roland Burris is apparently planning on sticking around at his current gig. In an interview with ABC 7's Charles Thomas, Burris said - albeit in a round-a-bout way - that he plans for running to keep his seat in 2010.

One last question for Roland Burris: Will you run for a full term as U.S. senator in the February, 2010, Democratic primary?

"I basically say I'm not going anywhere," Burris said.

What do we take from that?

"I'm not going anywhere," said Burris.

How should we take that?

"You can take it as you see it."

Of course, Burris has constantly been hounded by the issue of money. Thomas reports Burris as having about $900 in his campaign fund, well short of the $12 million experts project is needed to run a full, statewide campaign.
