But for now, we have some interesting news regarding Terry's former and potential Republican opponents.
You heard this here first--not from some watchdog or street blog, but we have reliable information that former county board member and state senator Chip Maxwell is considering a fall campaign against Lee Terry. We've been told that he was looking at a potential campaign in 2014, but this one surprises us given that Maxwell would not only potentially damage Terry in such an effort but also damage any possibility for an effort in 2014. We'll continue to monitor this development.
Now for the others who lost to Terry in the May primary:
- Jack Heidel -- Heidel graciously congratulated Lee Terry on his victory on election night. That was the responsible and gentlemanly thing to do.
- Brett Lindstrom did not congratulate Terry and has already declared that he will run against Terry in 2014. If he thinks Congressman Terry will give him any ammunition in the next two years, he's wrong. He should have at least stepped forward and congratulated Terry on his victory.
- Glenn Freeman also avoided congratulating Terry since election night. Glenn's a great man but we would have expected more of him.
