Spoiler alert: Shap Smith will run for governor.
I know, shocking. But so reports the AP’s Dave Gram.
Mr. Speaker appeared on the soon-to-disappear Mark Johnson Show this morning and said that “he would make an announcement next Wednesday,” but wouldn’t say what. So Dave worked the phones and got a couple of unnamed “high-ranking Democrats” to spill the beans.
Being honorable people (cough), the sources refused to be named “because they did not want to be seen pre-empting Smith’s announcement.”
Which, of course, is exactly what they did. It’s just that they “didn’t want to be seen” doing so. Thanks, guys.
We’ve known for months now that Smith would run, just as it’s obvious Matt Dunne will enter the race, and it’ll be a shocker if Sue Minter opts out.
