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)
