John Lyon reports today
MARK DARR: A candidate in 2014. We predict no.
that Republican Reps. Andy Mayberry
and Charlie Collins
plan to stay in the race for lieutenant governor no matter what incumbent Reublican Mark Darr
does. John Burkhalter
is also running as a Democrat.
Darr had planned to run for Congress but dropped out last week
amid a growing scandal about his misspending of campaign money for personal use. His statement of withdrawal was somewhat ambiguous about whether he'd run for lieutenant governor again.
The prediction here: He won't. He has more troubles to come on the spending front than merely correcting "errors" on his campaign reports the last couple of years.
