Warren Redlich told the Spotlight on Thursday, Jan. 21 that he will be filing papers in Albany on Friday, Jan. 22 for the creation of a campaign committee called Redlich.
"It's still not definite that I am going to run," said Redlich, who announced on Monday, Jan. 4 that he is considering a run for the governor's office.
"The plan would be to run with the support of the tea-party," said Redlich.
Redlich said Eric Sundwall, a former chairman of the state Libertarian Party and congressional candidate, would be his campaign manager if he makes the decision to run. Sundwall is currently leading the effort to get Redlich to run for the governor's office.
Redlich said his decision of whether to run or not will depend on whether other tea-party candidates decide to run.
"We're seeing what else is out there, getting a feel for thingswe're getting close," he said.
Redlich said there is currently not a candidate in the mix that embraces the ideals of the tea-party movement. He said "I feel like people in Albany and Washington are living in a bubbleright now there is not a candidate that is not in the bubble."
