We posted a story two weeks ago that a source close to the situation had said Craig James was leaving ESPN at the end of the year to run for political office in Texas. At the time, there wasn't enough information to confirm the report, although we did have a statement from James through our friends at Crystal Ball Run that ominously referenced his ties to Texas business leaders and his focus on his "analyst responsibilities."

But now it looks like the Pony's run for political office is indeed coming true. According to Gromer Jeffers, political reporter for the Dallas Morning News, Craig James will file paperwork Thursday to run for the United States Senate...
