Holden talks Lt. Gov run to students
BATON ROUGE - Mayor Kip Holden brought up his interest in the lieutenant governor's office again Friday while reading to fourth-grade students in Baton Rouge.
Holden was asked by students at The Dunham School about his career plans, and said once he was finished with his term as mayor he'd like to try for lieutenant governor.
Holden has mentioned his interest in the office in the past to media, saying in 2013 he was "80 percent sure" he'd run for the office in 2015. He has not yet made a formal announcement.
WBRZ News 2 anchor Sylvia Weatherspoon also read to students at The Dunham School with Holden Friday.
