Surprise! Ron Barber is NOT running for Congress


gomer_pyleFormer Democratic Congressman Ron Barber surprised everyone this morning by telling Jim Nintzel that he will NOT be running for Congress in 2016. As Gomer Pyle would say: “Surprise! Surprise! Surprise!

This should open the door to several candidates in a contested Democratic primary. Stay tuned.


  1. Given the somewhat excited and even hopeful tone of your last post regarding Ron Barber, you seem remarkedly complacent about his announcement he is not going to run. Personally, I think this will open the door to some fresh faces among the Democrats and some more interesting races.
