Tonight’s question, greetings, and banter here. (More)
Today Rep. Trey Radel (R-FL) resigned. Politico’s Jake Sherman and Alex Isenstadt broke the story this morning, and TPM’s Daniel Strauss has a copy of Rep. Radel’s resignation letter. The National Review’s Jim Geraghty reports that Democrat April Freeman has declared her candidacy, as have four Republicans in the R+12 19th District. First-term Rep. Radel pleaded guilty to cocaine possession in November, and the House Ethics Committee voted to investigate him earlier this month. Will this offer Democrats another special election pick-up opportunity?
