Nebraska Gov. Dave Heineman is evading questions about whether he would reconsider running for U.S. Senate next year against Democratic incumbent Ben Nelson.

Heineman was asked about the Senate race Tuesday because
national Republican leaders have been calling him about running
even though he said previously he wouldn't run.

The Republican govenor says he listens when people like Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell call, but he thinks the focus should be on the candidates already in the race.

Heineman says any of the Republicans running would do a better
job than Nelson, who angered many Nebraska conservatives by
providing the 60th vote needed in December 2009 to advance
President Barack Obama's health care reform measure to the full
Senate.
