One Day He's In, The Next He's Out
Sutff like this always cracks me up, Reynolds drops out
Robert Reynolds, a Republican who filed Monday to run in a special election to replace former Rep. Todd Baxter, ended his campaign today as abruptly as it began.
Reynolds’ filing angered local GOP insiders who wanted the party to unite behind candidate Ben Bentzin against two Democrats and a Libertarian. Their goal is a Bentzin victory without a runoff, and another Republican in the race would have made that more difficult since it could have split GOP votes between two candidates. Travis County Republican Party Chairman Alan Sager said Monday night that Reynolds had no record of party activism or voting in Republican primaries.
Reynolds said Tuesday he did not face pressure to get out of the race and withdrew because of family reasons that came up on Tuesday morning. “No one’s called me,” he said.
Reynolds’ name will not appear on the Jan. 17 ballot, according to the secretary of state’s office.
Family reasons that came up Tuesday morning? That's sounds a little "fishy"?
