Democratic gubernatorial candidates continue to run… for the hills

Very few Democrats seem interested in running for governor in the wake of Jennifer Granholm’s reign.

First, the assumed frontrunner John Cherry announced he was out, just weeks after saying he’d be proud of running on Granholm’s record. Then Dennis Archer, Sen. Debbie Stabenow, Hanson Clarke and Bart Stupak.

Now, the wildcard, Denise Ilitch has announced she won’t run.

If State Rep. Andy Dillon decides he’s running, his competition appears to be only Rep. Alma Wheeler Smith and Lansing mayor Virg Bernero, two candidates with very little statewide profile. (On second thought, that might not be a bad thing for them).
