Rep. Bill Keogh has decided not to run in November as an independent. He said this morning that he'd been urged to do so by Dems and Republicans, but has opted not to try the alternative route through the door.
Keogh, after four terms in the Legislature, lost the Democratic primary Tuesday to newcomer Suzi Wizowaty. He said of her: "Suzi Wizowaty did an outstanding job of organizing and implementing an effective campaign. I think she will do a good job in her new role."
Keogh remains on the Burlington City Council, which he said will ask ward clerks to give them a report about what did and didn't work in Tuesday's election. No doubt, a lot of things worked beautifully, but it wasn't hard to see that a fair number of things didn't work well.
