Just had a phone call from Budd McLeroy. Budd is an Army Master Sgt, Iraq vet, former firefighter, and did it all with one leg. You'd never know because if there's anything he's not, it's disabled. He's also a Republican.
In any case, he's an old friend. He'll be pulling his papers and entering the race for Congress, running against Dem Bob Filner. Both are from the Chula Vista area, just south of the city of San Diego, CA.
I've never known Budd to back down from anything, so if he says he's going to run for Congress, he surely will.
I wished him luck, but as a Democrat, I hope he loses. But narrowly.
