That didn’t take long.
About two weeks ago, congressional candidate Pat Davis made waves by saying, “F*ck the NRA” in a television ad.
Now, the current Albuquerque city councilman is calling it quits. Davis this week suspended his campaign to represent New Mexico’s First Congressional District.
“Taking back our country will take strong progressive voices in every level of government. I’m incredibly proud of the race I’ve run, but if progressives remain divided we’ll all lose to the conservative Democrat out of state Super PACs have picked,” he said on Facebook.
“I’m setting my own race aside to help the most electable progressive win, and that’s Deb Haaland,” he continued.
Hmmm. I wonder what makes Deb more electable than Davis? Could it be that Davis tanked any chance he had of being a viable candidate when he took a potshot at the five million men and women of the National Rifle Association?
There’s no doubt about it. Good riddance Mr. Davis.
(If you have a minute, you can watch Davis make an utter and complete fool of himself defending his decision to run the ad on Tucker Carlson.)
