UPDATE: Dave Catanese and his sources stand by their story. On Twitter, Catanese writes: "Despite @peterkinder's account today on the radio, 2 College Republicans re-affirm that he said he "will be" running in 2012."
Contrary to reports from the College Republicans in the audience for Kinder's
announcement speculative conversation at Jack's Restaurant in DC's Dupont Circle, Kinder says there is simply "a chance" that he'll announce a campaign for governor after the 2010 elections, and he didn't say anything he hasn't said out loud in Missouri. Listen:
Of course Kinder has been telling people in Missouri that' he's running for governor, so I'm a little confused by this whole dance.
Regardless -- In accordance with Kinder's wishes, prospective supporters are asked to refrain from following him on Twitter or befriending him on Facebook until everything is official.
