I’m sure you’ve all heard by now that Bob Patton dropped out of the Seventh District House race late last week. Citing several reasons in the Press, Patton bowed out just before the deadline. Didn’t I tell you Patton and Smith should avoid answering their phones for a while? Looks like Patton got the call from the “I hate Hill-ers.”

Disclosures were due last Thursday, as well. Unfortunately, the website has not yet updated, so information is sketchy. Currently listed is Hill’s cash-on-hand, which is just over $15,000, and Smith’s cash-on-hand, which is just over $3,300. All you Hill haters better put your money where your mouth is, or this isn’t going to be much of a race!

I’ll be posting both candidates’ full disclosures as soon as they become available.
