Steve Carter Weighs Bid for GovernorFebruary 4th, 2011 at 10:39 am by Jim Shella under Jim Shella's Political Blog
Former GOP Attorney General Steve Carter is “giving serious consideration” to a run for governor. That according to Brent Embrey, who is helping Carter assess 2012 possibilities.
Embrey says Carter has received unsolicited support to run and would like to serve the public again in some capacity. He argues that Carter served as a “good conservative in the executive branch” and therefore would be a good successor to Mitch Daniels. Embrey says Carter’s considerations are not a commentary on Mike Pence but also says that a potential Pence nomination in 2012 should not be a “coronation.”
