Well, well, Mr. Fitzhugh

Is Craig Fitzhugh gonna run for governor?

Sources close to the minority leader told The City Paper the Ripley Democrat is planning to put his name on the ballot for the state’s top job.

When asked directly whether he would run for governor, Fitzhugh said “I wouldn’t rule it out at all.”

“I’ve got some experience, good, bad or otherwise. And feel like I understand the issues of this state, understand the budgetary process and just am concerned with some of the fundamentals of our state. Before we step too far back, we just need to keep things moving forward,” he told The City Paper Wednesday.
