Where's Scott MacLean?
Seems the Republican candidate for congress in Connecticut's 1st district has disappeared!
This story in the Hartford Courant explains it.
"MacLean has raised about $1,000.
MacLean complained that Republican leaders have not offered to help his campaign.
Because of the lack of support, MacLean said recently that he plans to leave the party after the election and try to form a centrist party that would appeal to the "Great American Middle."
In the last week before the election, MacLean said he has virtually stopped campaigning, focusing instead on forming the new party."
Interesting concept - the man couldn't raise even $2,000 but thinks somehow he can form a new party? Seeing as he and all of his `major' supporters could fit into a phone booth with room to spare it'll be interesting to see just how far he gets with his new venture.
