Gary Lindstrom drops out of Colorado Governor race on the Jay Marvin show!
Damn, I need to find a way to blog more frequently. I was listening to the Jay Marvin show on Monday, and heard Gary Lindstrom announe that he is officially dropping out of the race for the Democratic nomination for governor. Unfortunately, since I couldn’t find time to blog it, ColoradoPols beat me to it. By two full days!
Democrat Gary Lindstrom reportedly announced this morning on Jay Marvin’s radio show that he would drop out of the race for governor and not run for re-election to his House seat.
Interesting that Lindstrom also isn’t going to run for re-election in the Colorado House of Representatives. From the Rocky Mountain News:
Lindstrom also announced that he would not run for re-election to the state legislature. He said the health of his wife, who has multiple sclerosis, was a major factor in his decision to end his political career.
“My wife is virtually paralyzed from the neck down,” he said. “I know what it takes to run a campaign, and I need to spend more time with her.”
I actually admire Lindstrom for making this choice. I would do the same thing in his position. Politics is second: family should always come first.
