SIR CHARLES STILL WEIGHING NOTIONS OF GOVERNOR BARKLEY?
Published April 5, 1995
The prospects of a '98 gubernatorial run in Alabama by "conservative" Suns superstar CHARLES BARKLEY is examined by Gene Owens of NEWHOUSE NEWS. Owens lists several of Barkley's "political assets," which on the surface, "seem formidable": He is an "articulate conservative, a self-described Republican with exceptional mass-media connections"; his name is a household word and "he is worth millions." On the other hand, Alabama GOP leaders, while "intrigued" by Barkley, "can quickly sketch the downside of his potential candidacy" as he has a "habit of saying what he thinks -- often in jest and just as often at the wrong time and in the wrong place" (Portland OREGONIAN, 3/31).
