Moments ago, Len Crosby, the announced candidate for state Rep. Frank Henderson's House District 3 seat, released a statement saying he's withdrawing:
Earlier this week, my 90-year old mother who still lives in her own home in Kentucky, had a fall and was admitted to the hospital. Since then, it has become apparent that the many and complex issues associated with providing more intense care for Mom, handling the medical issues that have resulted from her fall, and managing Mom’s personal affairs, will require greater involvement on my part. We all want to do the best for our family and our Community. We all want to be of service to others. I am no exception. ... Duty to family must, however, take precedence over other ambitions and commitments. Because of that, and after a significant amount of prayer and discussion with my family, I have come to the decision to withdraw my name from consideration. Full statement here.
Question: Is this seat jinxed. Henderson's hand-picked candidate was found to live a few hundred feet outside of House District 3. Now, this. What's happening here?
