Roundtable: The Next Governor?

It is no secret that Governor Adams is elderly and will not be with us much longer, perhaps not even surviving until the end of week nine.  Speculation has already begun as to who might be his replacement.  The Journal-Intelligencer’s political roundtable weights in:

It is hard to conceive of a world without Governor Adams!  But yes, such a sad day is coming, sooner than we would like.  For me, the only choice is the Governor’s heir-apparent, Assemblyman Sanchez.  He has the wisdom and experience to continue the policies of Governor Adams and the True Whigs and ensure the goals of the Revolution are successful.  I think he wins in a landslide over any candidate Progress puts forth.

I agree with Peter that Sanchez is the likely nominee from the True Whigs, although I could see Senator Adams enter the race as well to allow three generations of Adams’ men to serve.  C.B. Jackson would be a formidable candidate from Progress, but his age is sufficiently concerning that the party may choose to go younger, perhaps with one of their young stalwarts like Assemblyman bin-Fahd.  I don’t see the RDF putting forth anyone.  A race between Sanchez and Jackson may surprise us.  I could see Progress pulling it out.

Sometimes you have to question conventional wisdom, but I don’t see this being one of those times.  Whigs and Sanchez all the way.  Book it.
