Mickey Kaus for Senate: “It’s On”

Filed under: Politics — DRJ @ 5:09 pm



[Guest post by DRJ]

Mickey Kaus is officially a candidate for the United States Senate seat currently held by Barbara Boxer, running in the Democratic primary:

“I just received the official candidates’ notice from the California Secretary of State’s office. It’s on.

There are serious issues to be raised, and I will do my best to raise them.”

Michael Barone describes Kaus (or maybe Kaus describes himself) as a strong but idiosyncratic Democrat:

“Mickey insists he is a strong Democrat, but he’s an idiosyncratic one: he supports current Democratic health care legislation, but opposes comprehensive immigration legislation that includes legalization of illegal immigrants, and he strongly supported welfare reform in the 1990s.”

I like to see more competition, in business and in politics, so the more the merrier. Plus it’s fun to see a blogger take the plunge.

The Democratic primary is June 8.

  1. time for conservatives in CA to re-register…. the local GOP hacks want anyone but DeVore, and the MFM will gut him in the general election even if we do get him the nomination.
