    I think Clay might go for it (running for Lieutenant Governor). It seems pretty clear to me that he is itching to get back in the fray in some capacity or other. It is a losing proposition for anyone to run against Gina Raimondo for Governor. She will probably be unopposed in the Democratic primary.

    But the Lieutenant Governorship is a completely different race and one that is independent of the governor's race. These rumors about Clay running for something (he was also mentioned for State Attorney General) are being floated by the teachers' unions and other educational interests. The incumbent Lieutenant governor is big on diverting public funding away from public schools and toward charter schools. So is the just-ratified national Secretary of Education, Betsy DeVos. The public education people, led by the teachers' unions, would lobe to have a person in state government who is as strongly pro-public schools as Clay is. Clay also would be an enthusiast partner with Raimondo on economic issues and on programs focusing on women's issues.

    Rhode Island is such a weird state, politically speaking. Anything can happen. But an unabashed old-school liberal/progressive like Clay ought to be able to attract voters' support.

    This week the speculation is that Clay might run for Rhode Island state Attorney General. The incumbent cannot run for re-election because of term limits, so there will be a shake-up in any case.

    Clay supported a long-shot candidate, Pete Buttigieg, for Chair of the National Democratic Party in today's vote. Around noon, Buttigieg (evidently a personal friend of Clay's) dropped out. He did not formally endorse either of the leading candidates, but he has no reason to be dissatisfied with the eventual winner, Tom Perez. Perez was Secretary of Labor in the Obama administration and was mentioned as a possible running mate for Hillary Clinton.

    Clay is keeping his mouth shut about his own future ambitions, but at least he knows some people in high places.

    Arrow Clay for Governor Again???

    As RI's governor's race approaches--2018--the pundits consider outcomes by weighing in on possible Republican and Democratic candidates. Clay is among those mentioned as taking a possible 2nd run for Democratic governor. My overall impression of this lengthy article is that Republicans, with more money to spend, have a shot at winning the state house.
