Red Right Returning…July 23rd

(Red Right Returning is a look back at the activity of the past week of the Republican candidates in the 2012 primary. RRR is a nautical mnemonic for the side of the buoy or marker on which you should pilot your ship in order to stay in the channel. Feel free to voice your opinions on the candidates in the comment section.)

Obviously the big news of the week that displaced the Republican 2012 race was the debt ceiling conflict in Washington, D.C.

Former Louisiana Governor Buddy Roemer finally officially entered the race. He joins the ‘I know I can’t win but I’m running anyway’ tier of the race.

Michele Bachmann gets criticized for her history of migraines. Her doctor issues her a hall pass and her critics receive criticism for bringing it up.

Ohio held a straw poll. Romney won by a pretty decent margin with everyone else a fairly evenly dispersed second place including write in Rick Perry. Jon Huntsman finished dead last.

Otherwise, all quiet on the campaign front.
