King at the Crowne Tuesday: But What Office is He Running For?

Kerry King, who ran for Lieutenant Gov in 2006 (handy dandy info courtesy Andrew), sent out the following announcement a couple of hours ago.

Kerry King cordially invites you to his announcement for candidacy for a State General office on Tuesday, May 25, 2010 at 5:30 pm, at the Crowne Plaza Inn, Warwick, RI.
King promises to outline his program to rebuild Rhode Island as a state with less government, lower taxes and more jobs. King is a lawyer, financial planner and an executive with the experience of directing 11,000 employes and responsible for a $900 million budget.
“I will lead the charge for state constitutional amendments that will insure less government and impose fiscal restraint…and prevent legislators from continuing to ignore the will of the people,” King said.
Governor Carcieri, honored guests, friends and supporters will join Kerry for a brief program followed by refreshments.

Although highly unlikely, he sounds like he should be running for Governor.
How would he expect to accomplish all that as Lt. Governor, especially when RI will probably have a Independent nit-wit Governor with an all-Democrat assembly by 2011.

I hope he is not running for Lt. Gov. as Bob Healey has the conservative position for that office locked up. Any Republican who wants to continue spending $1m/year on a do-nothing job is a traitor to conservative principles. Unless Mr. King wants to do it for free, with no staff, as Mr. Healey does, and use it as a bully pulpit to say the things about how the GA runs our state that the current Governor hasn’t had the stones to say.
As for Governor, he’d have to run strongly to the right of Robitaille to get my primary vote, and I don’t think that’s likely.
