The usual ‘more time with his family‘ bit, and nothing about a 17 point deficit in the polls. Then again, that’s not too surprising – although it’d be great if just once one of these guys said “I’m not going to throw away ten months of my life on an election that I’m just going to lose anyway?” Admittedly, if Snyder had the nerve to do that he might not have fled the upcoming race.
Moving along, Charlie Cook had this at Democratic Toss-Up, and emphasis on ‘had.’ If I had to guess, I’d expect at least ‘Leans Republican’ by the next update. The three Republicans that I know of so far for this race are Tim Griffin, Scott Wallace, and David Meeks. Check them out.
