Bell time

We knew it was coming, and now via QR (and BOR and Greg), here it is: Chris Bell will make his formal announcement of candidacy for SD17 on Sunday. You can view a PDF of his announcement here, which highlights things we're familiar with such as his good name ID and the general grumpiness of SD17's voters, for which they are blaming Republicans. You know that I think Bell is a fine candidate for this office, and that I think he's got an excellent shot at it. What I'll be looking for, especially now that Republican Joan Huffman has touted her initial fundraising efforts, including donations from GOP bigshots Bob Perry and John Nau, is some sign of Bell's financial capabilities in the race. I hope some of the money people who stiffed Bell in 2006 step up to the plate this time around. It's the least they can do.

Once again the "appeals to Republicans." Why would Democrats want a Democrat who appeals to Republicans?

It's not an elcetion without Chris Bell running for something.
