State Attorney General Hector Balderas (D) will make a decision on running for governor by this summer, he said in an interview Tuesday at the National Association of Attorneys General.
Balderas: “I definitely want to make a decision in the next coming months. … I won’t wait past summer. … I think you’ll see we have financial resources, and polling shows I’m the frontrunner, but it’s not part of my decision. My decision is more of a personal nature.”
Balderas said, should he run, he’d be unique in his rural background and his “strong record of taking on corruption.” He also noted his previous work as state auditor.
Balderas: “I think I’d bring a different sense of urgency.” (Hotline reporting)
