California State Senator Tom McClintock, R- Thousand Oaks
McClintock is telling folks that he will be making an announcement early next week. But as you read the e-mail he sent to his supports, which is below, I think that his “formal” announcement will be anti-climactic — McClintock’s already in this race…
E-MAIL FROM TOM MCCLINTOCK
From: Sen. Tom McClintock
Subject: Potential Campaign for Congress
As you may have heard I am seriously considering running for Congress in the 4th Congressional district. While no final decision has been made yet, all initial indications are very favorable. This is a district where Republicans outnumber Democrats by over 17 percent and polling shows me in a very powerful position to win the Republican nomination and take on the Democrat who performed strongly in the 2006 election.
We have opened an exploratory committee to raise the funds necessary to take the initial steps before I am able to commit to this race. Your generous support would allow me to complete the exploratory process expeditiously and would weigh heavily as I prepare to make the final decision.

Flap says go ahead and visit his website and send Tom some coin for his Congressional run. The formal announcement will be next week.
