Cahill's sinking ship.. is the end near?

From the Herald:

Independent gubernatorial candidate Timothy Cahill, who has seen top aides defect from his campaign, is now losing his running mate.

Paul Loscocco today will announce he is dropping off the ticket and will endorse Charles Baker, the Republican candidate, The Boston Globe has learned.

Amy Birmingham, Cahill's spokeswoman, did not immediately return calls seeking comment on Loscocco's defection.

"I ran to have a spirited debate on the issues and to advocate for new ways to create jobs, lower taxes, protect personal freedoms, and fight for the principles of Ronald Reagan who inspired me to become a Republican as a young man,'' according to a Loscocco statement released this morning.

However, last week, John Weaver, a former chief operative for McCain, quit the Cahill campaign and endorsed Baker's candidacy.

The following day, Cahill campaign manager Adam Meldrum resigned from the campaign

He isn't sinking, he has already sunk.

And now we hear, this may have been intentional from the get go... from.. you know who.. the R's and Baker camp.

How absolutely slimey it was for Losscoco to withdraw. Just one more reason not to vote for a major party. The manipulation of this race is disgraceful.

The Cahill campaign is going to use the $750,00.00 they got from the State Election Commission to have a negative campaign against Losscoco.

They are going to say that he is insane and he was no great loss!

In other words the campaign will go from being Cahill/Losscoco to Cahill/Lost Coo Coo!

PS: How long can you tread water?
