Oh No Ogo!

He hasn't yet collected enoguh signatures to get on the GOP senatorial primary ballot this fall.
This quote seems significant and may prove a harbinger of future events:
An attorney representing Beatty's campaign has already notified the state's election office that it will challenge Ogonowski's candidacy based on irregularities in the nomination papers. When contacted yesterday, a spokesman for Beatty's campaign said the staff would "cross that bridge when we come to it."

So we have that spectacle to look forward as well.

Y'know collecting signatures is just a basic political skill, you get a few volunteers to stake out the local Stop-n-Shop and in a few weeks yer on the ballot as a bona fide candidate, it is a no brainer. So if Ogonowski can't coerce or simply pay for the foot soldiery to get his signatures free and clear, it is a damning indictment of basic competence as an aspirant for public office.
