Haven’t seen anything on this, but I’m sure all of you know. Kander is running so I will include his website link.

Wow. Good for him.

Too late for those who withdrew to get back in?

That's disappointing. Hope he recovers fully.

Nope. Filing doesn't open until Dec. 8.

Has Sly endorsed anyone yet? It will be interesting to see if Jason puts his support behind anyone or just stays out of it.

Can we at least take a minute before talking about the political ramifications of an, obviuously, very tough decision by Jason?

Not just a hard decision to drop out but a brave decision to fully disclose why. I wasn't a big fan of how he entered the race but I'm proud of him for how he exited it.

This is an unprecedented (or very unusual) action for a huge front-runner to pull out of a campaign. I'm not going to even pretend I can understand the challenges of someone living with PTSD, and Kander's candor in this matter is also extremely insightful, troubling (from the view of how our military personnel navigate the world post-service), and inspirational. We can and should talk about this, but also need to let him deal with his situation on his own. What we can know for sure is that the race went from not much of one to a completely open-ended one. I wish him the best, but I also can't help but immediately wonder how this impacts things.

I always thought it was odd he ran since he was doing so many other great things, I am really sad about this and hope we see Kander in a couple years, i really think he is a bright spot in the progressive side of democrats

Hello time traveller, welcome to the cruel, unforgiving battleground that is politics in 2018. I very much recommend that you return to the undoubtedly more civilized times that you have come from.

Some internet commenter is probably already screaming about this being a deep state conspiracy to elect Jolie Justus empress of Kansas City.

I’m sure and not surprised. But, we have the choice not to participate in someone else’s pathetic life.

People like Scott Wagner, who questioned Kander's motivations in a statement today. I know I joked about it, but that's actually pretty disgusting.

He also tried on Twitter to claim that as a council member he started efforts that actually began in 1999, 12 years before he joined the council. It's not defining by itself but it shows bad character when combined with other things.

I would like to see Jolie Justus run now. Quentin Lucas would be a good choice too. Both are balanced individuals who have a good feel for what the city needs.

Jolie Justus would get backed by both of them if she runs again.
