Other than not letting Joe Lindsey win this with no opposition, I can’t imagine why he’d run. Surely he can count:
No way anyone with a R next to their name wins this race. When I first got wind of the possibility of a Republican candidate yesterday, I just laughed. Redistricting made this district even more Democratic than it was before. Yes, a black Republican represented the district for one cycle – Winsome Sears – but that was a fluke: she beat the beleaguered Billy Robinson.
Let me say it now: when you lose, Marcus, don’t blame it on the lack of Republican support. Because even if every Republican in the district supports you, you’re still going to lose.
