Williams, betrayed by GOP, drops out of Kingston Judge race
Donald Williams, the current retiring D.A., has backed out of his bid for Kingston City Judge. Williams lost his bid for the Republican nomination getting trounced by J. Micheal Bruhn Jr., at the Republican convention. But, why? Why, would the Republican party abandon the highest elected official that they have? It's not like Williams is unelectable, while he has never really faced off in a contested political race, he is still very popular and would have given Gilpatric a better run for his money then Mr. Bruhn. He would have lost, but would have done better then Bruhn will do. To be fair, I don't know Mr. Bruhn and he may be a very nice guy, but it amazes me that the GOP went with anyone else other then their own district attorney.
However, Donald Williams, did the right thing for the party, even though they didn't do the right thing for him. Williams lost the convention, and is doing what is in the best intrest of the party and backing out. Not forcing a primary and helping the other side. At least Williams still has his dignity and integrity intact...I wish I could say the same about some Democrats.
