Georgia's House Speaker David Ralston is one person at the top of the list who is expected to run.

But for now, at least, he's not talking about considering a run.

"I don't think it's appropriate to think or talk about that particularly during a legislative session," Ralston said. "I mean, we have enough distractions as it is."

Ralston did say he knows in the coming months Georgian's will consider who they want as their next governor. Speaking to the Atlanta Press Club, Ralston said he thinks people will look for someone with vision who is a strong leader.

For now, Ralston is focused on his current position.

"The job I have now I'm incredibly honored to have, so I'm happy to die in this office," he said. "Some days I think I'm pretty close to it."
