I made the decision to run for the Arkansas House of Representatives on Sunday, March 15, 2009—597 days ago. We face no serious opposition today, having won our fight back in the primary, but it will be nice to have things come to an official end.
And though today will likely be a very dark day, remember: President Obama had only been in office for a few weeks as of 597 days ago; nobody had heard of the Tea Party, and the Republican Party was a complete wreck. Today’s losses won’t be defeats from which we can’t recover in two years.
So there’s that.
If you haven’t voted yet, please go do so today. Thank you.
