Back in the 70's, my father (twice) attempted to run for Congress. We were living in Scranton, Pa.... NEITHER party apparatus (R or D) would even entertain him running against the well-entrenched Joseph McDade. After all, my dad was just a modestly successful business man and had few political connections. He ran as an independent (I), garnering less than 2% of the vote after spending nearly $50k of his own money (no small amount for our family, I assure you). Not only that, business suffered for a few years afterward. Lesson learned. Many have said this: "We sure do E-lect our leaders but we don't get to SE-lect our leaders."
