1st District Democrat candidate disqualifies self from race.
If anyone thinks the blue wave is going to happen in 2018, lets look at one of the more competitive races that the Democrats thought they could win. Democrats were hoping that Matt Morgan, a veteran, young, and apparently articulate, could unseat the Bergman from the first congressional district this time around. However he apparently used his post office box address on the some or all of the 1543 gathered petitions he had gathered for his candidacy.
I guess this is a no-no, and the according to a Gongwer email alert, the board of canvassers are saying “sorry fella, you aren’t on the ballot.” It is reported he will be filing as an independent.
This is a different shade of blue for Michigan Democrats, who for the top race in the state, have a bankrupt animal abuser, a (probable) Muslim Brotherhood agent, and a child sex abuse enabler to choose from.
It is NOT a good year to be a Democrat.
