I appreciate all the support. I really do. In the past week I’ve learned who real friends are and are not. It has been eye opening. I had been all along very, very dismissive of running. But given the efforts of several and the financial pledges of support, I figured I should actually take the time to seriously and prayerfully consider it out of respect for those who asked and offered to help.
I don’t understand these people who take a bunch of time publicly wringing hands over these things. A week of thinking about it was enough.
So, we won’t have candidate Erickson to kick around anymore. But,
We will find someone to catapult into the arena. It just won’t be me. I’ll instead still be standing here to keep the bridge with thee.
Interesting times. Erick received significant pledges of financial support for his bid. Should he be able to collect those on behalf of a candidate of his choice, it’s going to be an expensive primary.
