Well ok – she hasn’t actually SAID that. What she HAS said is that if Kelly manages to win Tuesday’s election she won’t challenge him in the upcoming primaries for the new seat.
On the other hand if Barber wins, she will run for the Repub nod.
So Repub voters have a chance to undo the mistake they made in choosing an obviously unqualified and apparently somewhat challenged individual to represent their party, and run a decent candidate in November. And if they are too squeamish to actually vote for a Dem, all they need to do is stay home.
You’ll feel better about yourself, and your party, if you do.
