Tom Crawford reports on what he has been hearing with regard to a possible Barnes-Thurmond ticket.
[I]t looks like Roy Barnes won't be making the big announcement on June 1 - he has a trial that starts on that date, so it may be another week or two before he tells whether he will run for governor or not.
The trial is expected to last only one day, so maybe we will be hearing something sooner.
Mr. Crawford also reports that -- subject to the caveat "accuracy not guaranteed" -- he is hearing:
If Barnes announces he's running for governor, Labor Commissioner Michael Thurmond will supposedly wait two weeks and then announce that he is running for lieutenant governor. It would be a key part of Barnes' strategy to put a unified slate of Democratic candidates on the ballot.
