One rumor spinning around last week's Democratic State Committee meeting was that Ron Klink, the former congressman and onetime U.S. Senate nominee, was gearing up for a run for lieutenant governor.
Here's Ron's take on the report.
"It's totally made up,'' he said. "The subject has never been broached. I never talked to anyone about it.''
Mr. Klink said his phone has been ringing off the hook since the rumor surfaced, but that he had "not a smidgen of interest,'' in the prospect. "I thought it was a bad joke,'' he said.
