Krusty Konservative: Rants inches closer to making gubernatorial run official

Excerpted from this post at Krusty Konservative

This weekend Rep. Christopher Rants sent out the following email to fellow
legislators letting them all know what many people already suspect, he’s running
for Governor. ... While this confirms much of what we already know, it also gives
us some new information. First, Rants' family supports his run for Governor. This
is significant. Without the support of your family, running for Governor would be
nearly impossible. Second, Rants seems to be finished in the State House. "Either
way we are all home together be it at Terrace Hill or Sioux City," Rants writes.
Does this mean its Terrace Hill or bust? Third, Rants is actively raising money
and has someone on board to help him. If Rants has one advantage it's his ability
to raise money. He already knows the players and has existing relationships with
many of them. While I'm not surprised that he has been meeting with donors, I'm a
little surprised that he already has fundraising events set up.
