Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman, who has been telling the media for about six months he's considering running for governor, might have finally made a decision.
Sun political columnist Jon Ralston says his sources tell him Goodman will not run. Ralston just put up a message on his twitter page that says "LV Councilwoman Lois Tarkanian confirms Oscar Goodman called to tell her he's not running. Press conference to say no! Only in Oscarworld."
Goodman is calling a press conference to discuss his political future at 2 p.m. today in his office at City Hall.
Goodman, a former Democrat, changed his affiliation to non-partisan in Dec. 15, just to keep his options open to run as an independent for governor.
So I guess all that fan fare last month was over nothing. So does this mean Mayor Oscar won't be running for something else? I guess we'll find out in the coming days. I really didn't expect him to stir up so much controversy not to run.
Rory Reid's campaign must be breathing a sigh of relief today...
