Former Congressman Mike Ross has resigned his job with the Southwest Power Pool as he moves closer toward a potential run for Arkansas governor next year.

A spokesman for SPP said Tuesday that Ross resigned his post as senior vice president for government affairs and public relations as of Wednesday "to pursue another opportunity in public service." SPP is a nonprofit that manages electric services for 65 utilities in a nine-state area.

Ross said last month that he was reconsidering seeking the Democratic nomination for governor after Attorney General Dustin McDaniel dropped out of the race over questions about an admitted extramarital relationship. Ross last year had decided against running for governor.

Ross' resignation was first reported Tuesday by the Talk Business website.

Makes sense. Definitely the closest thing the Democrats have to another Mike Beebe.
