State Speak­er Dav­id Ral­ston (R) didn’t rule out run­ning for gov­ernor on Wed­nes­day.

Ral­ston: “Over the com­ing months, Geor­gi­ans are go­ing to start think­ing about, talk­ing about, what they’re look­ing for in the next gov­ernor. … I think they’ll be look­ing for someone who has a vis­ion, such as a Zell Miller with the HOPE schol­ar­ship or Nath­an Deal with eco­nom­ic de­vel­op­ment and crim­in­al justice re­form. … [Or] someone with the cour­age on some of these is­sues I talked about. At least that’s what I’m go­ing to be look­ing for. … I’m happy to die in this of­fice. Some days I think I’m pretty close to it.” (At­lanta Journ­al-Con­sti­tu­tion)
