Popular Miyazaki Prefecture Gov. Hideo Higashikokubaru, a former comedian, continued to fuel speculation that he may be considering a bid for a Diet seat in the lower house election that must be held this year by holding a fund-raising party in Tokyo. It was his 17th fund-raising party in his term, which has lasted slightly more than two years, but the first in the capital. It is unusual for prefectural governors to hold events of this type in Tokyo.
