Worst. Endorsement. Ever.
State Sen. Russ Potts may be running for governor as an independent. But the Winchester firebrand still considers himself a Republican.I guarantee the endorsement won't be appearing on any of the candidates webpages. I'm absolutely dumbfounded by this move. Let's assume, arguendo, that there is a problem in the Republican party, and that Russ Potts wants to speak to it. Does he really think that his endorsement carries any weight with Republican primary voters? If it's some sort of Jedi reverse psychology mindtrick, then I can't figure it out.
So Potts had no qualms about casting an absentee ballot in the open GOP primary for governor, even though he hopes to run against the winner this fall.
Of course, it could just be about Russ Potts.
