Does the Inland Empire have its own Sarah “I might run” Palin?

The answer: Could be!

State Assemblyman Paul Cook (R-Yucca Valley), a very nice gentleman to say the least, is having a hard time making a decision these days.

A odd characteristic for a retired Marine colonel.

Yes, Cook, who is termed-out of the Assembly next year, is having a tough time deciding his future.

Will it be teaching?

Will it be a run for the State Senate?

Will it be a run for U.S. Congress?

Or,

Will it be a run for county supervisor?

In the mean time candidates are staking out there respective territories and gathering endorsements and campaign dollars.

Tic…tic…tic…
