milan to mumbai runs for congress
As you probably noticed, I haven't posted for several months, not because I have nothing to say but because I have been preoccupied with other things. As many of you know, I was ultimately unsuccessful in my Cheltenham School Board race despite pulling a higher number of votes (just over 3,300) and percentage (35-40 percent) of any Republican in recent memory. (3,300 votes may not sound like a lot, but remember, it's only one Township, Rudy Giuliani didn't get much more in some States, and he spent a lot more than I did.)
Rather than sulking, I took my defeat as a sign to do the obvious thing: run for higher office. Consistent with this principle, I am now the Republican candidate for Congress in the 2nd District of Pennsylvania, a seat occupied for fourteen years by a Democrat, Chaka Fattah. Those who want to know more about my candidacy, or (heaven forbid) contribute to it, are welcomed to tune in to my campaign website, www.livingstonforcongress.com, which contains all necessary information and then some. I'll continue to write here, periodically, about politics and other matters, with the proviso that Mike Livingston the candidate is in no way responsible for anything that Milan to Mumbai, the blogger, might have to say and vice-versa. Unless of course it helps me: in which case I, like any politician, not only take but demand full credit.
