If a campaign suspends in the forest...

Bob Evans announced that in his bid for Congressional District 5 in Colorado against U.S. Rep. Doug Lamborn he was going to be a champion for the little guy.

I've been told that only millionaires run for congress. If that's true, then the "people's house" has become an American House of Lords. But, if they're wrong, if common folks still have a voice, then we are honor bound to speak up.

Today, the Democrat has announced via e-mail that he is suspending his campaign.

I would like to announce the indefinite suspension of my campaign. I began this campaign because I believed that the effectiveness of our educational system and our stewardship of the environment will determine the economic and social status of our children.

The foundation of this campaign has been FDR’s Second American Bill of Rights as stated in his 1944 State of the Union Address. I thank all of you for your support and invite you to join me in the critical battle to make these ideals a reality.
