Northup For Governor?

Former Republican congresswoman, Anne Northup’s former aide, said she is on the verge of announcing her bid to challenge Governor Ernie Fletcher in the spring GOP primary.

Terry Carmack was Northup’s Chief of Staff during her ten-year congressional career. He said Northup is hearing from Republicans across the state who are asking her to run because they think Fletcher cannot win re-election.

Carmack said he expects Northup to make an announcement sometime next week. Northup is known as a prolific fund-raiser and tenacious campaigner.
