After writing this I got the munchies
This week’s column takes a look at the 98th Assembly District and gives a revealing look at Bob Collison, Libertarian for Assembly, seeking the Republican nomination.
This is not a casual and youthful flirtation with a fringe third party. After all, as a former chairman of the party, Collison played an instrumental role in recruiting Ed Thompson to run for governor as a Libertarian, and co-chaired Thompson’s campaign. Many Republicans still blame Thompson for Gov. Scott McCallum’s loss to current Democratic Gov. Jim Doyle in 2002.
So the next time you hear a Republican sarcastically say, “Thanks Ed” upon hearing of another Doyle scandal, you can cheerfully add, “and Bob!” Collison had no regrets, even promoting Thompson as a speaker nationwide to other state Libertarian chapters.
You’ll have to read the article for the drug legalization stuff.
