ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Republican Dan Bongino says he’s considering running for political office in 2016, but he says it’s premature to say which one.

Bongino announced Wednesday he is launching a new political action committee called Battle Ground Resistance.

Bongino says in a telephone interview that it’s too soon to say whether he will run for Democratic Sen. Barbara Mikulski’s seat. She announced this week she would not seek re-election in 2016.

Bongino says her announcement was equivalent to a political earthquake in Maryland, and it will take some time to assess the impact.

Bongino, a former Secret Service agent, ran a close race against Rep. John Delaney in Maryland’s 6th Congressional District in western Maryland last year. He also ran against Democratic Sen. Ben Cardin in 2012.
