Good ‘ole Dan Hoover has a piece on his blog about the possibility that Andre Bauer might be drafted to run against Congressman Bob Inglis. It almost reads as if he was cheering him on as well.
This is interesting to us. We always knew that Andre had little ideas of running for Congress dancing in his head, but we just assumed that it would be the First Congressional District. Andre owns property (his primary residence we believe) in Charleston and we just assumed that when Henry Brown retired, Rod Shealy had his candidate already lined up.
Now, it seems the entire right wing is up in arms over Inglis’ stance on Iraq and the buzz around the Upstate is “Run Andre, Run!” We think this fervor will cool down a bit, and we honestly believe that your residence is a factor irregardless of constitutionality. But it sure is interesting to think about. No matter how early; we bet Bob Inglis will be thinking about how much he doesnt want to run against the Comeback Kid.
