Rep. Les Gara, who had decided against running for governor next year, says he’ll seek re-election instead.
The Anchorage Democrat last month said he hadn’t ruled out a run for governor if important conditions were met….
Since then, Sen. French has announced he’s considering a run. French lost the Democratic gubernatorial nomination in 2010 to Ethan Berkowitz, who lost to Republican Gov. Sean Parnell.
Senator Wielechowski has been mentioned both as a possible gubernatorial candidate or running mate to Republican Bill Walker, who plans to run for governor as an independent.
Gara says he’d revisit a run of his own if neither makes it into the race, but noted he must ask his wife’s consideration.
