As I pointed out yesterday, one of the more interesting primaries held yesterday was that in the OH-02 Democratic primary, where the winner will face Jean Schmidt in the fall. The race gained national attention last week when candidate David Krikorian told a group of people that Yalamanchili couldn’t win any elections because of his name.
Well Krikorian was wrong and Yalamanchili did win an election – against Krikorian himself.
Krikorian didn’t let his defeat silence him though. While conceding the race live on local television, Krikorian decided to blame Yalamanchili for “playing the race card” and went on to to say Jean Schmidt will win this fall.
Krikorian also lost in 2008, when he ran as an independent and called himself a “Reagan Conservative”. This guy really is something else and given his tendency to blame everyone else for his woes, it makes you wonder if he really isn’t a Republican.
