The N&R reports Guilford County Board of Education member Paul Daniels —facing a tough District 5 race against challenger Linda Wellborn —- has decided to pull out of the race.
Note commenters to the N&R article don’t let Daniels off easy, wondering why he’s just now coming to this decision, especially since he said he believed the “campaign was winnable.” Maybe he’s finding out otherwise.
Bottom line, however, is the GCS board is losing its lone conservative voice, and that’s too bad.
