Putnam IS Finishing His Term

I offer abject apologies to the excellent Rep. Adam Putnam. Based on several reports (in newspapers I won’t name, because the fault is mine for not double-checking) with terribly misleading wording, I had commented below on the idea that Putnam would be resigning from Congress to run for state Ag. Commissioner in Florida. I was rather angry, as you can see. I am happy to report (although embarrassed) that Putnam WILL, repeat WILL, fill out his current term in the House. So he is not being derelict in his duty at all. I still hate to lose him from the House — he clearly was a rising star, and a good guy — but at least he is setting himself up, and his conservative supporters up, for higher things, WITHOUT letting down his current constituents.

Putnam’s communications director Keith Lee Rupp contacted me and corrected the record — and said that he is trying to get it corrected in the other papers that misreported it, as well. I hereby correct it here, and again apologize for relying on second-hand info.
