Jolly Challenger Drops Race

Ed Jany (D), the Marine and former cop, national and state Democratic leaders hailed as an ideal candidate to take on newly elected U.S. Rep. David Jolly (R) is dropping out of the race, the Tampa Bay Times reports.

"The sudden and surprise announcement comes days after a Tampa Bay Times report about him seemingly padding his educational background and resume."

Bloomberg: "It has been an absolute comedy of errors for Democrats in Florida's 13th congressional district, which as of mid-May stands atop an unthreatened throne as the most bizarre House election this year."

Nathan Gonzales: "Since Democrats don't have a candidate, I think we're pretty secure in changing our Rothenberg Political Report rating of the race from Lean Republican to Safe Republican."
