U.S. Rep. Marcy Kaptur, D-Toledo, will be the guest on Friday's "Bill Moyers Journal," says Steve Fought, the congresswoman's spokesman. Check  your local PBS listings.

I asked Fought about the "Marcy for President in 2016" boomlet launched by her appearance in the new Michael Moore movie, and he told me that she's focused on her current job.

"Well, we didn't do the launching. Michael Moore launched it. We'll see how that shapes up," said Fought, who has already seen the new movie twice.

Kaptur does not welcome the kind of fundraising she would have to do if she really considered a race, Fought said.

"She appreciates the attention in the movie," Fought said. "If she wins the lottery, she might reconsider."
