The Halter watch

Posted By on Sun, Feb 28, 2010 at 7:27 AM

John Brummett examines all the reasons Lt. Gov. Bill Halter should or should not bypass a certain re-election and run for U.S. Senate of 2nd District Congress.

He concludes he should stay put.

The evidence in the last week pointed to a race for Senate. But those hints might all be attention-getting show biz. If he does seek higher office, Democrats best hope he does it early in the filing period, so that another party member is on deck with a filing fee to seek his No. 2 spot. But this would presume Halter cares deeply about what other Democratic politicians think about him.
