Former U.S. Senator Larry Pressler has made it official; he plans to run for the Senate in 2014.
Pressler made the announcement Thursday afternoon in front of a crowd of supporters at the downtown Holiday Inn. Pressler plans to run as an Independent and if elected, he promises to only serve one term.
Pressler says he decided to run for a number of reasons, including breaking the gridlock in Washington. He also would like to end the war in Afghanistan.
