Before you kickstart your campaign with a political bus tour ala Sarah Palin, you have to ease into a race by throwing out subtle hints.
The garage door sign above could be an example of a citizen urging the former sheriff to run for office again. Or it could be that Rick has plans on challenging Martin Cuellar for old time's sake. And we know how smooth that went three years ago.
Be on the lookout for signs that point to actual campaigns. Some you'll miss while others hit you head on.
