|Description||Rumors are that Emil Reichstadt, one of three declared candidates for the Democratic primary for US Senate, will bow out early this week. |
I liked Emil Reichstadt personally. I've met him a couple of times and he is a very likeable man. I was never sure of what he could do in this primary but he apparently saw the writing on the wall too and didn't want to ripple the waters.
Instead of pursuing John Cornyn it would appear that the former Army JAG officer is going to take on Republican Dan Branch in HD 108. I'm very pleased to see he will shift resources and stay in the hunt against Republicans one way or another.
In 2006 Dan Branch was oppossed by openly gay Democrat Jack Borden, who ran basically no campaign at all. Even with running no campaign he managed 40.42% of the vote in a strong Republican district.
With the resources that Reichstadt can bring to the table in HD 108 I would expect that those numbers would improve dramatically.
I wish Emil Reichstadt and his campaign all the luck in the world. Give Bush-lite Republican Dan Branch a good run for his money.
