Will he stay or will he go? (Cordray, I mean)

Will he stay or will he go? (Okay, it's poor analogy, but I like the song.)

This article by C. Ryan Barber (possibly behind a paywall) explains that Rep. Jeb Hensarling keeps asking Consumer Financial Protection Bureau head Richard Cordray whether he's going to serve out his term or resign to run for Ohio governor:

U.S. Rep. Jeb Hensarling can ask, and ask, and ask again. But Richard Cordray, director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, has no plans of telling the Texas Republican whether he plans to resign anytime soon to pursue his rumored interest in the Ohio governorship. Hensarling, chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, sent Cordray a letter Mondaysetting a Wednesday deadline for the CFPB chief to state whether he plans to resign to run for governor before his five-year term expires in July 2018. Cordray, a former attorney general of Ohio, responded Wednesday—“in accordance with [Hensarling’s] stated deadline,” he wrote—but his answer was the same one that has so frustrated Hensarling in the past. [That is, he just won't say.]
