Ronald Reagan is sometimes credited with this nugget of political wisdom: "If you're explaining, you're losing."
Right now GOP Senate hopeful Greg Brannon has got some 'splainin to do.
The candidate favored by Rand Paul, Glenn Beck, and our own C4GC recently was found by a jury to have misled investors in a tech company where he served as a director. Brannon has to pay back $250K, although he says he did nothing wrong and will appeal.
That's good enough for some of his supporters, but it's hard to see Brannon's protestations convincing a lot of GOP primary voters who aren't already in his camp that the Cary obstetrician is not damaged goods. (Brannon isn't the only MD running as a GOP outsider to find himself in hot water last week.)
One person who must be hoping that Brannon survives the primary is Kay Hagan, who is tasked with plenty of explaining of her own over the ACA.
