The latest scandal took too much of a toll on Flowers. He is moving to Massachusetts after his term is over and getting married–GOD help her if the other three women weren’t lying. We wish both of them the best. This means that debate loser, but war hero Sean Barney now has a clear path to the Democratic nomination for state treasurer while Republicans have to settle on a candidate next month in the primary. The timing of this is bad luck for Republicans, but the office is now an open seat and the Democratic presumed nominee has been shown to be unprepared and less than qualified for the office by the aborted primary campaign. It is a 50/50 proposition which party wins and the best prospect for a statewide GOP pick up. Democrats also benefit by ending the cloud of scandal–justified or not is for you to decide– on their ticket.
