Connie Saltonsall all the way! Oh.... Never mind.

Remember when Bart Stupak was leading the fight to keep abortion out of health care and he was the number #1 target of pro-choice groups? Remember when a virtually unknown woman named Connie Saltonsall vowed to run against Stupak and be a pro-choice voice for Northern Michigan and how almost every pro-choice blog linked to a story about her or her campaign web site and encouraged donations?

Well, that’s done.
The first Democrat to announce she would challenge U.S. Rep. Bart Stupak in their party’s August primary — before Stupak said he would retire from Congress at the end of the year — said today she was withdrawing from the race for the northern Michigan seat.

“I am forced to do this because it has become apparent to my campaign that the leadership of the Michigan Democratic Party has preemptively anointed Gary McDowell as their Democratic candidate,” said Connie Saltonstall, a Charlevoix resident.

McDowell has previously been endorsed by the Right to Life of Michigan Political Action Committee.
