The Yellow Sheet reported Saturday that Gabrielle Giffords and her advisors made up their mind on a candidate to replace her: Ron Barber.
The plan would be to have Barber run in the special election, but not in the regular election in November. No word yet on if there will be a “Giffords pick” in that election.
Annointing Barber would be popular among the high ranking Democrats who were more than a bit preturbed by a previously floated plan: getting Republican (and Mitt Romney donor) Lisa Lovallo to switch parties.
Whatever the plan turn out to be, it is expected that it will be announced today, if for no other reason that they are running out of time.
