Finally, Confirmation

W. Gardner Selby over at the Austin American-Statesman has Victor Morales thinking about joining the CD-28 fracas:

Victor Morales, the once-obscure Crandall schoolteacher who steered his pickup around Texas in a failed 1996 challenge to U.S. Sen. Phil Gramm, lost a Dallas-area House race in 1998 and lost another Senate try in 2002. Now he's weighing a run against first-term U.S. Rep. Henry Cuellar of Laredo in the Democratic primary.

Morales, with roots in Pleasanton, near San Antonio, said he's intrigued, though "I never have needed the limelight."

I'll just let that last sentence dangle in the wind.
