I just want to do, make noise, leave when the ovation is loudest. That’s the best way. Yeah …I don’t want to be there for 10 years, 12 years, 16 years, that’s the best way. I want to do other things. 4-8 years, that’s the limit you can hold me to my word.” As for the money aspect, Kate said, “There is no money. I can’t match the people who have been in the system for 20, 30 years.
I am going with God and my heart” she said Don’t expect Kate to share money like most politicians. According to her, “I’m not sharing money. If you continue sharing money, it will never stop.
