Leppert: I’ll Come Clean on Plans Soon

While his potential successors have started jockeying for position, Dallas Mayor Tom Leppert has remained mum on his re-election plans, as the DMN‘s Rudolph Bush reports today. So at yesterday’s big hoo-ha for DSO white knight Bill Lively–after Roger Staubach introduced the mayor to the crowd as “Senator Leppert”–we asked Hizzoner whether he wouldn’t like to just state his intentions now and clear up all the confusion. “No, no, no,” Leppert said with a laugh, walking away. “I’ll make an announcement in a couple of weeks.”

UPDATE: Gromer’s reporting that Kay Bailey won’t seek re-election to the U.S. Senate. So Tom may not want to waste much time making the big reveal.
