I did the best that I could and I have no regrets. It is certainly an uphill battle when I was a third party candidate facing an opponent with tons more name recognition who had over 48 grand to spend on his campaign. I do not fault Phil GiaQuinta for using these to his advantage; a smart politician uses any edge he has. I congradulate both bim and Kevin Howell on a clean campaign. In the future, I'll put more effort into fund raising.
But even if there seems to be no chance at winning, I think it is important for all parties to nominate candidates to as many races as possible. It is difficult to hold a politician accountable who has no opposition.
