John Georges: "I?m not planning to run, but I?m not saying I?m not running" for Louisiana governor

Businessman John Georges, who bought the Baton Rouge Advocate in 2013 and subsequently expanded the paper into New Orleans and Acadiana, announced last weekend he would step down as the paper?s publisher in September, naming the newspaper?s general manager and COO Dan Shea as the paper?s incoming publisher.

The move raised speculation that Georges may run for Louisiana governor, as he did in 2007, since the publisher changeover will happen shortly before qualifying in the statewide elections.*Shea*officially*will become publisher on Sept. 1; qualifying for the Oct. 24 primary is Sept. 8-10.

?I?m flattered by the attention, but a lot of this is a coincidence,? Georges told Gambit, adding that he had discussed passing the publishing torch with Shea a year ago. ?Is there a scenario I would run??
