“It’s a family decision. It’s something that we have to commit to together. And we have a new baby.  She’s not taking part in these discussions….Absolutely a consideration,” Moulton said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

“I knew I couldn’t make a decision like this until I understood what it was like to be a father. And as much as I got advice from people about… what that would be like, we all know that it’s different when it happens to you…. But, ultimately, Liz and I are going to are going to talk about this. We’re going to decide in the next few weeks.”

On Sunday, Moulton said he does not want his daughter to grow up in the current political climate.

“I don’t want her growing up in this country the way that it is, with a commander in chief that we fundamentally can’t trust, where women are disrespected, where she doesn’t have the same opportunities that a little boy growing up at the same time would have,” he said.

“We have a lot of things to fix in this country.  And if I can be a small part of doing that, then that’s a compelling reason.”
