Herman Cain and Newt Gingrich are out. U.S. Reps. Paul Broun and Tom Price have formally begun pondering their futures, now that U.S. Sen. Saxby Chambliss has decided to step out of their way.
But here’s another name that’s only just surfacing: That of Sonny Perdue, modern Georgia’s original Republican governor.
“The governor is really concerned about the current course of the country, and is very much analyzing today’s news,” a close associate said this afternoon.
Consider the potential: Perdue presided over a pretty good economy, he has immediate statewide name Id, he’s had three years to put his family affairs in order, and he’s already taken on Grover Norquist.
