Is it 2010 already?
A new session of the State Legislature is always fun for political junkies. All legislatin’ aside, it is just a veritable smorgasbord of rumor, trial balloons, and quality political chatter. We just love it, like pigs in mud.
The Shot has been hearing from a handful of sources that State Senator Jim Ritchie has been talking up his colleagues about a potential run for Governor in 2010. Ritchie represents the 13th District which covers the GOP strongholds of Greenville, Spartanburg, and Union counties. It is safe to say that the Senator from the upstate will be joining a crowded field of powerful hopefuls for the race to replace Governor Sanford who will be term limited.
Didn’t we just swear him in a few days ago?
