The Shot | House GOPers pushing Nathan Ballentine to run for Treasurer

Numerous Republican House members are pushing Representative Nathan Ballentine to run for State Treasurer.

Ballentine is a prominent Columbia banker and a rising star in the Republican Party

Most interesting is that Ballentine had the 2004 Upset of the Year, defeating then House Majority Leader Rick Quinn for re-election. It would be interesting to see Ballentine face Quinn again in this race.
