Others were quicker to get this reported than I was, but my friend Kevin Gallagher has dropped out of the Senate District 30 race. Beverly Marrero and he would be drawing votes from the same pool of liberal voters, and could easily have allowed Robert Spence to get the Democratic nomination. As my friend Leftwing Cracker says, "Robert Spence's problems would kill our chances to keep this seat in Democratic hands". I've documented his ethical troubles here before, and a well-funded Republican campaign could do much worse damage than I did with a half hour and a search engine. If we pick Spence, we lose the seat. Plain and simple.
I would like to thank Kevin for making the decision Marrero wouldn't--- To stand down for the sake of the party and the state. It is that kind of wisdom that made me want to vote for him in the first place.
Now, I'm going to throw my support behind Beverly Marrero. And when she wins, I want to see Kevin Gallagher taking her place in District 89.
Kudos, Kevin. I'll leave my yard sign up a few more days in your honor.
