The candidate tells us:
No apologies needed. Today has been, indeed, an interesting day. The kind coverage on FrontBurner was a surprise, but not an unwelcome one. Despite your posted apology, my candidacy is official. I have already qualified and filed to be on the ballot as a Republican candidate for U.S. Congress for the 30th District of Texas. As your link to my campaign website shows, there is not much content on the site as of yet; we are obviously still gearing up, but I am running and intend to run to win.
By “official,” I meant “officially announced.” Whatever, though. Good luck, kamikaze.
