A caller says Republican U.S. Rep. Tim Griffin said on a radio show this morning that he'd announce Thursday his decision on entering the Republican primary for lieutenant governor — a race he previously told Democrat-Gazette reporters multiple times he had no intention of making.

No need to hold your breath. He's in. Multiple people who've spoken with Griffin over the weekend say he has firmly declared his intentions to run.

Minor interest now arises in whether this decision affects the two other annnounced Republican candidates — Reps. Charlie Collins and Andy Mayberry. I'm assured that Democrat John Burkhalter's candidacy isn't deterred by Griffin's entry.
