Larry Crim is running as a Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate in 2014. There. You've been warned.
After the Mark Clayton debacle, some blamed the media for allowing a person who believed the United States was building a 400-yard-wide secret highway from Mexico to Canada to run in — much less win — a U.S. Senate primary undetected. To which we say, fair enough. Yes. Our bad.
To Democratic officials who held the fourth estate responsible for the embarrassment — and there were some of them — consider that mea culpa not intended for you. You know, don't piss on your leg and blame us for not raising the alarm that you're pissing on your leg. Or something.
But anyway, letting bygones be bygones, consider this an attempt at holding up our end of the bargain.
Larry Crim will be a candidate in the 2014 Democratic Senate primary. His last name starts with a "C" so he may well appear at the top of the ballot. (He is currently the only Democratic candidate running.) Read more about him here, and here, and here.
Friends don't let friends nominate U.S. Senate candidates by accident.
