David Bernstein alerts us that David James Wyatt, who ran for mayor last year on a platform of saying virtually nothing, has collected enough signatures to get on the ballot against state Sen. Sonia Chang-Diaz in the 2nd Suffolk district this fall.

In a mayoral debate last year, Wyatt said he is a pro-life Republican.

The Bay State Banner says Yancey, Clemons and Wyatt should drop out of the race and help get one of the other minority candidates who actually has a chance get elected:

Sometimes it is heroic to quit. Politicians are competitive, highly motivated and aggressive individuals who will fight to the end. It is unnatural for them to throw in the towel before the political battle is over. However, there is a strategic aspect of politics that just might call for such a maneuver.
