Real Values Take on Rumors that Dole Might Run for Governor in '08

 

There have been rumors circulating that some want Dole to run for Governor.  I have avoided them since I do not see her actually leaving Washington to grace us with her presence.  Real Values, however, is welcoming Dole's bid:

What, you mean Susie Sour Grapes Myrick and her anti-immigration shtick aint setting the world ablaze?

Maybe Dole will promise to do for NC exactly what she has done for the National Republican Senatorial Committee!!!

I for one hope she DOES run for Governor in 2008. I think Attorney General Roy Cooper, State Treasurer Richard Moore, or Lt. Governor Bev Perdue would eat Empty Wig's lunch in a run for Governor. Of course if she did run for Governor, she might actually have to move to NC, which I am sure would cramp her style.

More on '08 Governor

WRAL.com is focusing on a race between Republican U.S. Rep. Sue Myrick and our Democratic Lt. Gov. Beverly Perdue. However, neither one of the candidates has oficially declared yet.

This would indeed be an interesting race. And quite possible since, as the article notes:
Re

cent polls show Myrick and Perdue have the most name recognition in their respective parties among a field of potential candidates for governor

.

It is interesting that Perdue has the name recognition since we have already noted there are at least two other Democratic cabinet members that are considering runs before.

Democratic Primary for Governor in 2008?

The N&O is reporting that State Treasurer Richard Moore is beginning to assemble a team to make a run for governor. It is also looking more and more like AG Roy Cooper will be running as well. I do not envision any other Democratic contenders except for possibly Lt. Governor Perdue, although it is three years away. I will be putting up bios of Cooper and Moore soon to start getting the early picking started.

Update: Perdue is apparently running. Thanks to James for noting that in the comments. I apologize for being so ignorant as to that fact. Looks like the field is already taking shape three years out.
