And then there were ... 15?

Rep. Savannah Maddox has dropped out of the race for governor. I’m disappointed.

As we all know, next year’s GOP primary for governor is going to be a three-ring circus – a list of candidates well into double digits, all trying to just get our attention, much less our vote.

But today there is one less clown in that circus.

State Rep. Savannah Maddox, realizing that raising over $200,000 isn’t enough in a race with a Craft, a Quarles, a Cameron, and a Beshear, has dropped out of the race for governor.

In her press release, she noted, “Although this isn’t the outcome we may have hoped for in the immediate sense, I give you my word to keep fighting for the principles that led me to file my letter of intent in the first place. I will not back down, and I will not waver from redefining the appropriate role of government to reflect the vision our Founders intended.”

Frankly, I’m sorry she dropped out. I was really looking forward to seeing her on the debate stage, accusing the others of not being “true conservatives.” Au revoir, Representative Maddox. Stay safe, and wear your mask.
