Wednesday, September 3 was a day of good news for independent U.S. Senate candidate Greg Orman.
Orman picked up a key endorsement from the Traditional Republicans for Common Sense, a moderate Republican group. This endorsement adds to Orman’s collection of Republican and Democratic endorsements for Senate — demonstrating his overall viability as someone who can cross the political divide.
The biggest news for Orman was that his Democratic opponent, Chad Taylor, dropped out of the race late in the day. Taylor had serious funding problems and local Democratic leaders had already called for his withdrawal.
