Jim Rex setting up gubernatorial campaign?

What’s going on over at the Superintendent of Education’s office? Speculation for months has been that Jim Rex, the only statewide-elected Democrat in South Carolina, would mount a campaign for governor. It’s possible that might already be underway.

In Rex’s latest disclosure reports, he is listed as spending on several line items that have the description, “Primary 2010.” It wouldn’t make sense that he would face opposition for the nomination if he was running for reelection, so it must be prep for a try at higher office.

Among the payments are a reimbursement to consultant and aide Zeke Stokes for a P.O. box for Primary 2010, and disbursements to Alice Eddings for accounting for Primary 2010. Eddings, according to the Google, is the CFO for Habitat for Humanity of Central South Carolina.

It would seem that he’s laying the groundwork for the campaign now, and would announce after the general election this fall.
