In CT-4, Green Candidate Leaves Race. Chris Shays's District

http://www.ballot-access.org/2006/10/23/connecticut-gre... /

The Green Party candidate for in Connecticuts 4th congressional district "announced today that he is withdrawing. Connecticut law permits a candidates name to be omitted from the ballot as late as October 24," according to Ballot Access News. "The withdrawal is motivated by the Green Partys desire to help the Democratic candidate defeat the Republican incumbent."

The AP says Diane Farrell's (D) campaign "approached the Greens about three weeks ago" to unite in an effort to defeat Rep. Christopher Shays (R-CT).

4. As someone who has lambasted the Greens
I say thank you, Green Party of Connecticut, for this moment of clarity.

7. I also thank the Green party
I have said some unkind things in the past, but I do appreciate this decision.

5. A classy move
I still recall how a third-party candidate's refusal to do so in New York many years ago gave us Alphonse D'Amato.
