IS PERRIN PLANNING TO RUN FOR CONGRESS—AS A REPUBLICAN?!
Inside sources tell us that Dr Carl Perrin is beginning to see that he has no hope of winning that Democratic nomination. He may even be thinking of dropping out of that race and entering another race—as a Republican!
This is a bad year for Republicans. Between the war and the economy, voters are blaming the GOP for everything that’s wrong with Washington and the country. The party is finding it difficult to find candidates to run for congressional seats.
According to what we hear, the Republican leadership is trying to recruit some erstwhile Democratic candidates to run as Republicans. "Once you get in office,” they say, “you can vote your conscience. We will help you get elected because we want to have some nominal Republicans elected, so we won’t look so bad in November.” Insiders tell us that Dr. Carl Perrin is one of those who has been approached by the GOP.
We have been told that Perrin is considering the offer. The job pays $169,300 a year. That’s a lot more than he ever made as a teacher. Beside that, there are a lot of benefits that he finds appealing.
Perrin denies that he is considering a run for Congress and insists that he is still in the running for the Democratic nomination .
