Apparently Gotts got in the top two of the primary, even though he withdrew from the race.
He posted on his web blog on Tuesday:
I'm finding that the Palo Alto lifestyle is the only lifestyle for me. I will be here the rest of my life or will at least have a home here. I have to return to Washington to full-fill the promise I made to my 4th Congressional District but I will ALWAYS have a home here in Silicon Valley.Dig that!
Sorry, John, I don't dig it at all. You don't HAVE to come back. Really. LD15 will be just fine without you. You obviously want CA to be your home. We're good with that. Especially since the last 'promise' you made was that you were withdrawing from the race to move to sunny California. Do us all a favor and stay where you are.
You can bet your many bottom dollars that your Republican opponent will point out the obvious flaws in your candidacy.
The Yakima Herald's question of the day:
Would you vote for a candidate, regardless of political affiliation, who entered a race, withdrew and then re-entered?The response should not surprise anyone.
Except for John Gotts.
