Former Travis County District Attorney Ronnie Earle told the Austin American-Statesman that he is considering a statewide run. Earle told the Statesman he has been approached to run for either Governor and Attorney General.

Earle, who was Travis County's DA for 31 years after serving in the Texas Legislature, did not give the Statesman an indication of when he expected to make a decision.

Democrat Barbara Radnofsky has filed papers to run for Attorney General and both Tom Schieffer and Kinky Friedman are exploring runs for Governor as Democrats.

What do you think of Travis County's former top prosecutor running statewide? Which office would better suit him: Governor or Attorney General?

    Yes!
    Hell yes. I saw this coming months ago.

    And by “I saw this coming,” I mean somebody else gave me the idea while I was in the middle of ranting about how we don't have any good candidates.

    I like it. Popular, good name ID, and he doesn't have to resign from any other office to make a run. If he runs for governor, I might consider not crossing over to vote for KBH in the primary.
