Jim Brannon sent this news release to Huckleberries Online moments ago: "Since I announced my candidacy for mayor of the great city of Coeur d’Alene, I have been humbled by the generous support and encouragement of my fellow citizens. While I believe my leadership would have been beneficial to our community, it is far more important to me that Coeur d’Alene’s voters focus on the issues. If I were to continue actively pursuing the office of mayor, there is little doubt that the winner of the election this fall would be determined by less than a majority of the votes. Such a result is unacceptable to me and I believe that it could lead to further discord." More here.
Question: How does Jim Brannon's decision affect the race for mayor?
