Tennessee Lt. Governor Ron Ramsey is now ready to run for Governor-in earnest:
In spite of the obstacles to raising money (roadblocks the Lieutenant Governor desperately tried unsuccessfully to remove during last year's legislative session) Ron Ramsey has stayed in the race, however. Yes, Ramsey raised over $2 million before the gavel went down on the second session of the 106th General Assembly, but he hasn't raised a dime since January. The odds are still stacked against him because of that tremendous disadvantage, but Ramsey seems to believe he can make up for the shortfall very quickly.
