Democrat Governor 2012 Watch

With the Democrats still reeling from Sen. Evan Bayh’s decision not to seek the Governor’s office, Matt Tully penned a hilarious column outlining the various needs for a new leader of the Democrat Party and candidate for Governor.  We think the only thing he missed was being photogenic. 

Today, Mark Schoeff Jr. from the Howey Political Report wrote that Baron Hill all but said he won’t be running in 2012 for Governor.  It sounds as though Hill will be looking to take a break and focus on making a living at least in the near term.   That leaves Ellsworth, Donnelly,  and Weinzapfel.  Are we missing any one?

    I think that Weinzapfel would make a great Gov. He has the personality and the know how to do the job. Plus he is well respected state wide. However, being that far sough made be a problem for the Lake County folks.

    Brad is a great guy also, Im not sure how the beating he just took will translate to him ever being elected for a state wide office again.Too bad, he has the balls to do this job.

    No matter who runs, they will have a fight on their hands, Mitch will put in a lot of cash. Pence will be hard to beat,But he has shown that he will not bend on anything at all, I think that will hurt him.

    And it was listed in the Just 1 miutne section of the Star on Tuesday. I presume it was both Online and in the paper( From Online )Tax tiff: Holiday protest set for governor’s residenceWhat’s a Fourth of July without an all-American tax protest in front of the governor’s residence?More than 100 people plan to start their holiday festivities Wednesday outside the home in the 4700 block of North Meridian Street to promote replacing property taxes with a sales tax.The event begins at 10:30 a.m., and organizer Andrew Horning, a former congressional candidate, is promising more than a protest of “the out-of-control Indiana property tax mess.”He and Americans for Fair Taxation say a sales tax is a “fair, progressive, simple (and) politically neutral” alternative.
