The frontrunner in the GOP race for governor is sending a signal he has not yet decided on a running mate. His campaign sent out a vague news release this morning saying this:
Tom Foley to Make a Statement Regarding Lieutenant Governor Preferences Today
Note the plural in preferences. Will he release a list of potential candidates, or simply what he is looking for in a lieutenant governor candidate ? Campaign spokeswoman Liz Osborn told me no media event is scheduled. If the former ambassador were to announce his running mate, he would not do it in a statement.
We believe his list of potential candidates still includes the women I mentioned last week

We’ll keep you posted.
