The other day I met someone who knows CDR Lippold, USN (ret), personally. In talking I mentioned, jokingly, that I was peeved that the Commander didn't get in the Harry Reid Senate race. I believe he would have won handily.
This person agreed that Reid would have been out but that there were other time & money concerns. He further stated for me to keep watching Nevada politics and there would soon be news. I said "Of course if he runs...I'll get over being peeved!"
And today I get this blog post in my Google alerts. Here's an excerpt-
Kirk Lippold, Carson City resident and former commander of the USS Cole when it was attacked by terrorists several years ago – announced his 2012 primary candidacy against Republican U.S. Sen. John Ensign yesterday. Well…not exactly in those words."
I'm over it. Let's go!
And to the person who correctly predicted that there would be news soon....can I have tonight's MegaMillion numbers too?
