A Republican candidate in the 90th

Marcus CalabreseMarcus Calabrese has filed to run as the Republican candidate in the 90th. When we last saw him, he was a candidate for city council in Superward 6. He finished fourth in a 4-person race.

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.

  1. Algebra has never been one of my best subjects so your questioning my ability to count is a fair point. However I do count high enough to recall the number of elections you and I have both one.

    I was asked to run by a democrat and a Republican who both won in landslides and I have learned to take the advice of those who win. I welcome critics and have always derived great entertainment from this blog and others. I appreciate the time anyone takes to write about me and regardless of the outcome, I would always much rather stand and fight for what I believe in no matter how hard I fall. However I have always found more joy in surpassing expectations and I am grateful for those who join me in hoping that will be the case in August.
