Screenshot from 2014-01-14 11:08:54Commenters to this blog assured me that teabagger part-time radio host Ed Martin would defeat the empty (flight) suit Martha McSally in the GOP primary for CD 2.

It turns out that "Mr. Ed" stumbled out of the gate, and is out of the race before it really started. (Ed Martin is President/CEO of a Kentucky-based association that advocates for integrity in equine sport.) Republican Martin drops out of congressional race:

Republican Ed Martin, a former Tucson talk-radio host and horse-racing official, has dropped out of the race for the seat now held by Democratic congressman Ron Barber.

Martin, 59, said in a written statement that he withdrew because of “unforeseen personal family challenges“ that will require his attention. Martin announced his candidacy in September stating that he represented an alternative to Martha McSally, the 2012 Republican nominee, who is again seeking the congressional seat.

In addition to McSally, Shelly Kais, a former McSally campaign supporter and Tucson businesswoman is also seeking the party’s nomination.

Martin spent most of his short campaign claiming that Shelly Kais is a strawman candidate to siphon votes away from him so that McSally could win the primary. If there is any truth to his conspiracy theory, i would expect to see Kais drop out as well.

The Tea Party will be left with an establishment candidate anointed by Sen. John McCain, an empty (flight) suit who does not know enough about any subject to provide a substantive response to any policy question from the media. Is that what you teabaggers want? Haven't you got anyone else to step up and challenge McSally?

Time's a wasting.
