One man's fall from the bottom. A battle ground candidate gets 34,000 votes and zingers from various directions, including self.

Political junkies might like this story of a guy who got 34,000 votes in the recent election. The guy stepped up, again, to toss his hat into the ring as a candidate so the sitting politician didn't run without opposition.

The story seems to be similar to what could happen in Pittsburgh in the months to come with the election of a mayor. Will the Republicans offer a candidate like him? 

Perhaps not for mayor, but for the city council seat? 

And will the stings happen as they did in North Carolina? 

Time will tell. Lets know history so that the same mistakes are not repeated.
