In an interview on December 23, 2014, McMahon said that he would not rule out a 2016 bid for U.S. House. McMahon explained that, although he had other priorities at the time, he had received calls from others wanting him to run. McMahon stated, "Here in New York, we are really broken-hearted about these officers who’ve been killed, and that’s everyone’s main focus... It’s not something that I’m ruling out or ruling in, but it will get serious consideration after we mourn our tragic losses here."
