I remember he was originally for Romney, then for Santorum, then for Newt. Then I watched a segment on Newt and everyone was asking who that man was behind Newt at the news conference, with the huge smile on his face who almost pushed aside the child that was up there, to get on camera. It was JD and he was so proud he actually posted the pic from the news everywhere. Whatever you think about his voting record, you have to admit that it seems like attention is his currency.
Just for the record, I have voted for JD in all of his elections and have not said that he has done a bad job. I think it's great that he's responsive to his constiuents. There was some legislation that I disagreed with his votes on when he was Senator, but I don't think it's necessary to agree with someone 100% of the time. My issue was running for congress a month into a commission term.
I truly hope and pray this has nothing to do with bad news regarding his health and it doesn't sound like that is the reason for his withdrawal. Sen. Douglas seems to change his mind and flip flop a lot so I'm glad he made this decision a month into his launching his campaign as opposed to fundraising for the position and withdrawing at the last minute. I hope he will focus on the position he was elected for and it sounds like that is what his plans are. I have to wonder if he's been getting negative feedback for launching a campaign a month into getting elected, just because he withdrew today before tomorrows meeting with the public on the gun ordinance?
