Via The Hill:

Ben Affleck is not denying rumors that he could run for Senate in Massachusetts if Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) steps down.

“One never knows,” he told CBS anchor Bob Schieffer, in a taped interview for Sunday’s episode of “Face the Nation.”

The “Argo” actor-director refused to speculate on the possibility, but did fan the flames of rumor.

“I’m not going to get into speculation about my political future,” he said. “I do have a great fondness and admiration for the political process in this country.”
