Charles Barkley sat with CNN’s Campbell Brown last night and hinted at a run for Governor. The former Philadelphia 76ers and Phoenix Suns star has mentioned political ambitions since he left the court for the broadcast booth, suggesting his commitment to service. The Alabama seat will be up for grabs in 2014.

He said that his top priority as governor would be education. “The public school system in this country is the worst it has ever been and what that does is that hurts crime, it hurts the judicial system,” he said. “You know if you don’t give people education and hope, they become criminals. They get involved in drugs. So we have got to fix the public school system.”
