Jim Edgar will not be running for Governor, a seat he held for two terms in the 1990s. He had been rumored to be running for months, creating confusion in the state GOP and reticence among several potential candidates, as he would have been the clear front-runner in any primary. The field should clear up now, and the attack dogs let loose.
