The Goldilocks of Missouri Politics

Maybe Ed Martin will finally find his bowl of porridge that is just right.

The Show-Me State Republican who began the cycle as a Senate candidate then switched to the race in Missouri's 2nd District has switched once again, this time opting to run for attorney general. And the timing of his announcement is none too coincidental. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch:

Martin's surprise announcement comes just days before his congressional campaign would have shown his latest campaign numbers -- a hint that those fundraising totals were not improving.

Politically, it's not surprising. Martin was up against a very imposing opponent, former Ambassador Ann Wagner, who has run an impressive campaign so far and has put up some head-turning fundraising numbers.
