I am sorry about this because he was the balance in the Legislative Branch.

More bad news for the Unions since Rep. Moore was another of
their inside supporters especially for the Firefighters & SEIU!
I suppose the last minute announcement was so only those
he wanted to know could get qualified to run! So typical!

The Democrats are abandoning us to the Tea Party theocratic fascists.

Do you all reckon old liberalness Gary has figured out that the constiuents have figured him out? Gary never saw a dollar in the public's pocket that he didn't think he knew how to spend better than the holder. What's with these Dem's who for years have had a cakewalk with being re-elected, after drawing their own boundaries? The 'Pubs drew new boundaries and the old established Dem's run like flies. Kind of makes you understand they're not so dedicated to their cause, or do they figure they've fleeced the public to the point there's nothing else to take anymore.

Seriously, all joking aside, what's really happening is that the old Sounthern Democrats are watching what's going on at the federal level and even they can't stomach it. The Southern Dem sees what the skinny Muslim is trying to do to our country. Even old Gary has a conscience!
