Wallace and Folsom Considering Runs for Lt. Governor

Two names that Alabama's had quite enough of.
The race for lieutenant governor next year could feature two of the biggest family names in Alabama political history: Wallace and Folsom.

George Wallace Jr. said Thursday he's planning to run as a Republican. Friends of Jim Folsom Jr. said he's considering entering as a Democrat.

One of those "friends of Jim Folsom, Jr." is former Governor Don Siegelman.
Former Gov. Don Siegelman, who is looking at running for another term, said he and Folsom talk regularly and he has encouraged Folsom to get back into public service.
