Off the Kuff: Juan Garcia update

Off the Kuff: Juan Garcia update: "There's been a Juan Garcia sighting, in the Corpus Christi Caller-Times:

Politics seems to love Juan Garcia, the retired Navy pilot whose name had been thrown around earlier this year as a possible mayoral candidate. Questions remain, however, about whether Garcia loves politics.

Rumors began circulating last week that Garcia is planning a run for the U.S. Senate, rumors that Garcia isn't denying.

A new Web site (www.garciafortexas.com) asked for donations and calls Garcia a 'new face' with 'tested leadership, Texas values.' On Friday afternoon, the political messages had been removed and replaced with a one-line statement: 'The site is temporarily down for routine maintenance and will be back up shortly.' Garcia is a graduate of Harvard University's John F. Kennedy School of Government and is a retired flight instructor at Naval Air Station Corpus Christi. He did not run for mayor. An item in the political newsletter The Quorum Report mentioned the most recent Web site and quoted Austin-based consultant Jeff Hewitt as saying the site looked like a 'draft Juan campaign.' 'I'm not even sure Juan knows who's behind it,' Hewitt told The Quorum Report. 'I don't think Juan has made a decision.'"
