The Candidate's Wife: The Challenger posts repeatedly about The Senate Candidate Who Is Also A Woman

Remember the woman who wanted to challenge Primo in the primary - the one from last fall - and Primo convinced her to run for the state upper house instead, as there was not (and is still not) a declared party candidate for that seat?

Primo has invited her to every event he has hosted, has introduced her, and has given her a platform to speak. He has included her on his facebook page and mentions her repeatedly. He has helped her with campaigning.

UHW has refused to endorse Primo. I get it. I don't like it, but I get it. If both UHW and Challenger were to win in November, they would have to work together. UHW needs to remain neutral so she can have good working relationships in the possible future.

But I don't like it.

The Challenger keeps mentioning Upper House Woman on her campaign page. Challenger speaks as if she and UHW are a team.

Me: Does UHW know about this? Has she endorsed Challenger?

Primo: I don't think so. I don't think she has endorsed Challenger.

Me: Then she needs to shut this down.

Primo: I have asked her. She says she just has to stay out of it.

Me: But Challenger is making it look like UHW is on her side! By doing nothing, UHW is letting it seem like she and Challenger are running together!

Primo: I know. But UHW won't do anything.

Me: This is so wrong.

    1. Yeah, it's pretty soul crushing for true believers.

  2. This is breaking my heart. Primo may just be too nice of a guy for politics.
