Word has it that the recent interest expressed by Eric Clark in the IHL job would have set forth a fascinating domino effect.

If Clark had left, word has it that Amy Tuck would have lobbied to get appointed to the Secretary of State to run as an incumbent (of what party, we now have no idea). Then Travis Little would have slid up to the Lt. Gov’s slot to run as an incumbent on the R side. Word is that would have set up not only a bloody power struggle in the Senate.
