A little follow up on Jim Black... During an interview for Political Connections, Black's replacement Rep. Tricia Ann Cotham said she wants to keep her seat and will run in 2008. She also said she believes her consituents have already moved on from Jim Black. She told us the fact she's young and very different from Speaker Black that her district is already beyond the Black scandal.
We also did an interesting interview with Joe Sinsheimer. He says he plans to keep the heat on any potential scandals over the next few months.
Finally, my co-workers in Charlotte say they talked with Black this morning and he plans to be in state court next week. He didn't say specifically for sentencing but that would a logical guess.
