PSC Commissioner Susan Parker says today she is focussing on her re-election to the Public Service Commission and will pass on AL-05. See her statement [.doc] in the Press Releases section of the Political Parlor. Ron Sparks‘ statement on the matter is also here [.doc].
We hear Deborah Paseur is unlikely to run. Who’s in? Steve Raby? One Democrat indicates to the Parlor his skepticism that Raby will run with the rhetorical question, “Hasn’t Raby been rumored to run for every race since 1996?” Bud Cramer? Many folks have heard some third- or fourth-hand version of the rumor that the former Congressman might try to reclaim his seat, but no one seems to know where it came from or is willing to give it much credence. State Rep. Randy Hinshaw? As likely as anyone I know.
We’ll keep up with it as we can on the 2010 Big List.
