Lourey to Run Again?

A reader forwarded an e-mail this morning from outgoing Sen. Becky Lourey's now-defunct gubernatorial campaign. The e-mail was a request for donations to the campaign; it's been pretty well known that the campaign has been in debt since her loss at the DFL State Convention in June. Contained within the e-mail?
Imagine, if everyone who voted for Becky Lourey in the DFL Primary contributed just $5, she would retire her campaign debt and be well on way to her next great public service adventure! (emphasis mine)
"Her next great public service adventure!" Lourey's son Tony won the race on Tuesday for her Senate seat, so it's unlikely that she'd be pursuing that office again, and her home in Kerrick is within House district 8A, held by DFLer Bill Hilty. Unless Hilty or Tony Lourey are retiring or she plans on making a primary challenge, the only opportunities for her in the next two cycles would be the '08 Senate race or another crack at the governor's mansion in 2010. Could she already be planning one of these races?

More power to Lourey then!

I attended the DFL convention and she was by far the stronger candidate!
