The Two Faces of Harri Anne
I haven't heard anything about State Sen. Harri Anne Smith's (R-Slocomb) potential gubernatorial bid since she first floated the idea about a month ago. But if you insist on reading tea leaves before she publicly decides, I might have discovered a clue.
Not only has Smith's state senate website given her a newer, more comprehensive biography, but they've added a brand new photo as well. As someone who looks at the state legislature's website much more than a normal person should, I can tell you it is very rare indeed that a web page (much less a photo) is updated. See State Rep. Arthur Payne circa 1983 for further confirmation.
I don't know if Harri Anne Smith will run for governor or not, but judging by her newly revamped web site I think all signs point to yes.
(Oh and I already know I need to get a life.)
