Rico...Stay In The Private Sector

Mister Flash himself had an interesting post this last week about a possible conservative addition to the State Treasurer's race. Namely, Rico Oller.Now, I like Rico. He's a good guy, a conservative guy, and was a great Senator. But c'mon.

Like it or not, Claude Parrish has all of the slates locked down, and short of someone like Bill Simon (WHO ALREADY HAS SIGNIFICANT NAME ID) running, Claude is likely to win this thing.

If Rico can't beat Dan Lungren for a Congressional seat that largely overlapped his Senate seat, how can he expect to win a statewide campaign without the benefit of any slates???
Rico should set his sights elsewhere if he's looking to get back in the game. But a shot at State Treasurer just doesn't appear to be in the cards for Rico.
