A) Announce she's running for Governor
B) Announce she's endorsing Sen. John McCain
C) Neither of the above
The buzz is on.
Calls from a well-connected KY3 News anchor to the Steelman family Monday couldn't even produce a hint.
All we know is that Republican State Treasurer Sarah Steelman is holding a noon news conference from the kitchen table of her childhood home in Jefferson with her family and parents.
Jo Mannies, of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, notes her press release came from Republican operative Jeff Roe.
Roe seems to be aligned with Republican candidate Mike Huckabee, so it would be odd if a presidential endorsement came directly from his office. Also, why surround yourself with your family and parents to announce your support for Sen. John McCain.
That seems far too intimate . . .
This must be something personal. If you were going to mount an inner-party challenge for Governor, this seems like it would be the year to do it.
A source also says Steelman didn't attend the Governor's State of the State address last week.
But really? This political year couldn't get turned upside down any more . . .
