Michael Thurmond to D.C.?

Says Jim Galloway of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Acccording to Galloway, Thurmond has been offered a position within the U.S. Dept. of Labor. He talked to Democratic officials & lawmakers about the offer. Thurmond will testify on thursday at a senate hearing about re-training American Workers.
Now if Thurmond were to accept the position, then I suspect Perdue to appoint Melvin Emerson (R) to the position if thurmond were to take the offer. He has been mentioned as a possible candidate for Lt. Governor. I don't think he will run for the spot ( I'll get to that later). I doubt he runs for the senate. If he does, it will be 2014 when Chambliss is up for re-election. Deep doen inside thurmomd wants to run for governor, but once Thurbert Baker entered, it killed any chance of him running for that spot.
