I’ve been waiting for a well-known conservative third-party candidate to announce a run against McCain in the fall. Someone who can pull some votes away from the moderate Republican candidate and possibly give our guy or gal a boost.
Unfortunately, the closest thing we have so far is an announcement by Alan Keyes that he’s leaving the GOP and thinking about running as a Constitution Party candidate on an anti-immigrant platform.
Keyes made the announcement on Tuesday night in the ‘ballroom’ of Genetti’s Best Western Inn in Hazleton, PA.
Supposedly there were about 60 people attending the announcement- and quite a few empty chairs.
Nothing personal, Alan, but this isn’t exactly the big announcement I’ve been hoping for.
