    First off, it should be noted, MR Konetchy would have made a fine US Senator, and we would have been fortunate to have him serve if he could have been elected.

    He is a true constitutional conservative, and would represent those of us who still believe in the rule of law. It was not destined to happen however, as his candidacy was not strong enough to survive in a full field, and finally a challenge for the number of signatures sealed his fate. I have made suggestions in the past on how he could have better promoted his campaign.  

    Sometimes however, as good a constitution follower we might be, political skills are a prerequisite for elected positions.

    He writes:

    Dear friends and supporters.

    I have decided that it is time to step down from this race.

    I did not collect enough signatures to survive a challenge and have been removed from the ballot of the republican primary this August. After carefully considering several plausible options which would allow me to remain in the race, I have decided to that it is much more important to concentrate on removing Barrack Obama from the White House, retaining control of the House, and gaining control of the Senate. All my efforts will be focused towards these tasks.

    I truly appreciate all the support received from you, my friends and supporters, throughout the state. One of the most rewarding aspects of this race was going door to door, business to business, talking to people who are the true backbone of this state. The people of this state understand our American values and want our country back.

    With great respect and gratitude,

    Peter Konetchy

    I hope to see him involved to whatever extent possible in the future, as we need more like him as a part of the process.

    He did it his way (none / 0) (#1)

    No matter how restrictive it was for his message amongst the two Party establishment candidates in play.  Everyone's entitled to do whatever they can afford.  Some just have deeper pockets than others and can do what others cannot.  I have no problems with that.

    See ya around, Peter.

    Thanks for playing the statewide game.

    I would have preferred . . . (5.00 / 1) (#2)

    . . . that Peter have mounted a primary challenge to Dave Camp, but perhaps in 2014.
