It’s bad enough when the entire House leadership team endorses your opponent, but it’s probably the definition of a bad news day for a candidate when a leading newspaper forgets you’re even running.
In the race to replace Patrick Murphy — while the GOP side has a slew of contenders and someone could be forgiven for forgetting one of them — on the D side, there are only two: attorney Jonathan Chane and businessman Randy Perkins. But the Wall Street Journal either thinks so much of Perkins or so little of Chane, it failed to even mention Chane’s presence:
“In the 18th District in southern Florida, a seat now held by Mr. Murphy, the Democratic Senate candidate, the partisan composition didn’t markedly change. But the GOP is hoping a strong contender will emerge from the current pack to challenge Democrat Randy Perkins, a wealthy businessman capable of self-funding his race.”
P.S. Don’t tell residents of St. Lucie and Martin that they live in “southern Florida.”
