Boston.Com is reporting Kelley will announce this afternoon he is dropping out of the LG race. The reason stated is trouble with signature certifications.
On getting out of the race, this is hardly a text book example of how to do it. Apparently, few Kelley insiders were given much of an advance heads up that this was coming. I’m talking about people that have put in significant time into this effort.
The real test of character is coming up. That is how the candidate decides to close out this campaign. Of course that also depends on how the candidate sees the future for himself politically.
A word to the wise: Politics is all about character and keeping your word. If you say you are going to do something, people expect you to do it. So the question is, for those Kelley supporters (like myself) that might wish to support Sam in the future: How did he close out the campaign? With Honor or without?
Where does this leave Kelley supporters regarding those most likely to pick up Kelley’s one’s? The first candidate to get Kelley’s list of “one’s” and call through it to offer condolences and ask for support could find some nice low hanging fruit. Best of luck in getting that list…
