A little tidbit from Matthew Tulley's Star column today:
Now that state Sen. J. Murray Clark, R-Indianapolis, has resigned, talk is turning to his replacement. GOP leaders say City-County Councilman Isaac "Ike" Randolph of Pike Township has emerged as the front-runner. He formally declared his interest in a news release Tuesday.
There are other possible candidates, though, including Wayne Township Trustee Dan Gammon, insurance agent Pat Downey and Mike Delph, a former aide to U.S. Rep. Dan Burton, R-Ind.
Precinct leaders have until Dec. 15 to pick a replacement. And while Gov. Mitch Daniels isn't publicly endorsing anyone, through a spokeswoman he tellingly called Randolph "a terrific public servant."
Just for the record...I never got the call that I was being considered for the position. I'm sure it was just an oversight.
