Lieutenant Governor Brian Calley is stepping away from leading a petition drive to switch to a part-time Legislature. That further fuels speculation he’s getting ready to run for governor next year.
The petition drive is widely seen as an effort to boost a candidacy for governor. But in his announcement about the change in leadership, Calley dropped no hints on his future plans.
Running a ballot campaign while running for governor would present a host of legal and practical problems, however.
