In all seriousness, Paterson will reveal his pick in the next few days. While the First Lady won't get the nod, I do expect her to run for Senate in 2016 against freshman Republican Mark Kirk of Illinois.
GOVERNING Politics is the place for news and analysis on campaigns and elections. If there's a ballot measure in California, a legislative election in Alabama, a mayoral election in Anchorage or a governor's race in Rhode Island, GOVERNING Politics probably is writing about it. We love everything about state and local politics, from polls and campaign ads to policy debates and demographic trends.
