Now, Denn has to decide whether he wants to run against Beau Biden, someone he calls both a "friend and a formidable opponent."

Denn tells me his final decision on whether he'll run for governor won't come any time soon, but when asked whether he'll run for attorney general in November, something he has to decide much quicker, Denn was blunt...

"I honestly have never thought about it before, so it's something that I'm going to think about, and it's obviously on a much shorter timeframe, so it's something I'll need to think about pretty promptly and make a decision about," said Denn.
