"It's a bit unusual," said Mike O'Connor, Marion County Democratic Chairman.
"But I think he's a person who looks forward to other, other service than just the prosecutor's office," said O'Connor.
"Obviously his name gets thrown around for mayor, possibly for 2011 or for other things. Carl's a very good officeholder," said Tom John, Marion County GOP Chairman.
"I expect him to do what he needs to do which is raise money to be prepared for the future for himself," said John.
Shella indicates there is some speculation Brizzi may be interested in running for Congress. Brizzi's office isn't saying what his intentions are other than he has "to raise money to remain viable." Nobody expects Rep. Julia Carson to seek re-election, particularly after serious questions have been raised about her continued ability to serve out the remainder of her two-year term, let alone run for office again. According to the most recent federal election reports, she has raised virtually no funds since winning another term last November. Melina Kennedy is one potential Democratic candidate who could run for Carson's seat. Could we see another Brizzi-Kennedy matchup?
