WHAT: Game-Changing Endorsement Announcement

WHEN: Monday, April 19, 2010 at 11:15 AM

Who could it be? Well, not that many people. My first guesses would be:

  1. Jim Rex?
  2. Dick Riley?
  3. Jim Hodges?

I’ll guess I’ll have to wait and see. But you know what? I’d be willing to bet some money that it’s one of the first three I named. Nobody else would be “game-changing.”

    Of the three, that seems the most likely. Although Jim Rex would be the most “game-changing,” since it would mean the primary is over.

    Riley would be significant because he had been deliberately staying out of the primary.

    Hodges would be, too, since he has been on the sidelines. He had been rumored to be behind Dwight Drake when he first got into it, but he scotched that rumor, and has up to now maintained that he was undecided — undecided as to WHETHER to endorse in the primary, and whom he would back if he did.

    But it’s definitely one of the three. Watch and see.

    “Game-changing” would be Rex, or a Republican, imho…anything else is just a play in the same game….

    Of course, it would be unheard of a for a political campaign to puff.
