The Clarion-Ledger State Gov’t Blog, 8/24/7

In an interview last night, former Democratic Congressman Ronnie Shows said he is seriously thinking of joining the fray for the 3rd District U.S. Representative post.

Those “thinking” on the Repub side include Sens. Charlie Ross and Walter Michel.

Shows readily admits winning the heavily GOP populated post will not be easy. “I won’t run if I think I can’t win,” said Shows, who lost to Republican incumbent Chip Pickering in 2002.
