Hermening Drops Out

by on June 16th, 2010

It appears from reports today that Kevin Hermening has dropped out of his campaign run.  We found this link on WSAU, even though there are rumors swirling that this decision was supposed to wait until 7 pm for some reason.  Embargoed, or not, 550 AM broke it, and we applaud them.

This is the quote from that story…”I have concluded that there is nothing that I alone could do in Madison to change the attitude and culture should I be successful… I can have a much more profound impact on my community by moving forward in the non-elected arena of public service.”

We felt it significant to post the link to the WSAU story.  Clearly this will create some reaction, and it will free up supporters to move over to Dr. Pam Galloway in her attempt to take the seat from Senate Majority Leader Russ Decker.

Congrats to WSAU for breaking this news first.  Thoughts?
