Who is NOT running for the 50th...

Here are a few articles discussing Mark Wylands, choice to drop out of the 50th and head for the old seat that Bill Morrow is vacating.

@ Captiol Weekly
Assemblyman Mark Wyland announced Tuesday he will run for the Senate seat currently held by Bill Morrow, foregoing a chance to run against Morrow for Congress. Morrow is one of four Republican candidates running in the seat being vacated by Randy "Duke" Cunningham.

On the Democratic side, Cardiff school board member Francine Busby appears to be unquestioned front-runner. She's locked up a host of high-profile endorsements, including state treasurer Phil Angelides and insurance commissioner John Garamendi. Busby's communications director, Brennan Bilberry, said she had raised $248,000 so far.

Last week, Assemblyman Mark Wyland, R-Del Mar, said that he would not be running for Cunningham's seat, and was focusing instead on Morrow's state Senate seat. This touched off a scramble in several coming legislative races.

State Assemblyman Mark Wyland will probably announce Monday whether he will run for the 50th Congressional District seat or opt for a bid for the state Senate seat held by Oceanside Republican Bill Morrow, a Wyland adviser said Tuesday.

Wyland, R-Escondido, has been considering a run for the U.S. House of Representatives seat being given up by Rep. Randy "Duke" Cunningham, R-Escondido.

The 50th Congressional District runs along the coast from Carlsbad to Clairemont Mesa. It stretches east to Escondido, and south to Rancho Penasquitos and Mira Mesa.

It's a free country, of course, and Wyland, who had floated his name as a congressional candidate, is welcome to the stress-free road of least resistance. And the state Senate isn't exactly chopped liver, even if conservative Republican legislators are treated as if they have BO in Sacramento.

And we will notice that Howard Kaloogian of astro-turf fame, is now the "favorite" running for the 50th.

Please note that this article comes from Human Events online. Its a right-wing rag that Ann Coulter is a "Legal Affairs Correspondent". I'm sure that carries weight because she is most likely getting the web-zine for conservatives sued on a semi-regular basis.

Ugh!
