Wow, we got mentioned in the Republic. Not ones to rest our laurels though, here is your early Monday political report.
Another Democrat has entered the race for CD-1. Jeffrey Brown has tossed his hat in the ring. He keeps busy helping with the Kucinich for President campaign as their Southwest Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender (he left out Questioning) Coordinator.
On his web page he describes a 2005 event “which found him hospitalized and in a nursing home, temporarily confined to a wheelchair.” He goes on to state “I hope to give a voice to all of those who are often forgotten and neglected in our society.” We can wait for his issues page to read that he is the pro-life candidate on the Democratic side, we at least home he will take a stand against euthanasia. Being confined to a wheelchair in a nursing home while young, that is a close brush with death indeed.
In CD-3 there is now officially a Libertarian in the race. Mark Yannone is his name. I am sure Mark means well but my guess is that his message will get pretty well drowned out by the partisan battle that is shaping up in District 3.
Keith Swapp has entered the race for ACC. We do note that they are now three Republicans in the race that are not part of the McClure/Robson/Stump team.
Best of luck to all the recent additions to the race and we look forward to covering your campaigns.
