A Matter Of Opinion

Benton bows out

GOP primary narrows.

Don Benton, Republican candidate for U.S. Senate, last week on staying in the race despite Rossi’s entry:

“We can no longer look to the establishment to turn our economy and our country around. The people want an independent voice that will take on both parties and stand up for common sense and fiscal responsibility.”

Benton today:

“.. since this campaign has never been about me, I have decided to do what is best for my country, my party, and my fellow Washingtonians: I am stepping aside to endorse Dino Rossi.”

If “the people” want independent outsiders, wouldn’t Clint Didier be the choice?
