Former Senator Jim Webb to decide soon on 2016 race

WLNI-MRICHMOND, Va. (AP) _ Former Democratic Sen. Jim Webb of Virginia says he’ll make a final decision in the next few months about whether to run for president in 2016. Webb says he’ll “move forward” if he gets the right kind of support and financial backing. The 68-year-old Vietnam War veteran served as Navy secretary under President Ronald Reagan and was a one-term senator. He says he’s “very concerned” about the country’s direction. Webb says the U.S. needs to reorient its national security and foreign policy while addressing economic problems faced by many. Webb could offer a challenge to Hillary Rodham Clinton, the leading potential Democratic contender. Webb says he doesn’t want to comment on any others considering the 2016 race.
