A recent post at Ridenbaugh Press states that GOP Rep. Bob Sump will be retiring, opening up a seat in the safe-GOP 7th district. Sue Lani Madsen has already declared her intent to run, though there will likely be several others in what I hope will turn into a tight, multi-candidate race for this safe seat. Madsen ran for the House in 2004, but lost to current Rep. Joel Kretz.

I like to think that I'm a rarity in blogging, in that I'm a political nerd who doesn't have a partisan axe to grind in everything they write. I considered myself a Republican up until 2004 when I finally had enough of their bible-based politics, yet still harbour a deep dislike of the Democratic Party because of their ties to labour groups as well as their tendency to bloat budgets. Ideologically I'm somewhere between centrist and libertarian. On economics I fit neatly in the centre-right, while on social issues I can be fairly radical. And no, I'm not British. It's just that I can respect that they created our language and know how to write it properly.
