Bell Bailing?!?

On Blog for Bell:
U.S. Senate candidate Dr. Ford Bell will be in Room 125 at the Capitol for a media advisory at 3:30 this afternoon.
Hmmmmmmm! I have no reason to believe that he is dropping out. Maybe it is just wishful thinking.

We'll find out in a few hours.


UPDATE: Polinaut hints that my wish just may come true:
"U.S. Senate candidate Dr. Ford Bell will make a major announcement and hold a news conference this afternoon at 3:30 in room 125 of the State Capitol.

All press are strongly urged to attend."

I'm sure the Klobuchar campaign will be watching closely to see if Ford Bell is dropping his bid to challenge her in the DFL primary...
UPDATE II: MNPublius has received reliable confirmation of Bell's pending departure from the race:
I can now confirm beyond a reasonable doubt that Dr. Ford Bell is, indeed, dropping out of the United States Senate race leaving DFL endorsed Amy Klobuchar as the sole Democratic candidate for the seat. There is still the possibility that we have been mislead about this story, but I think it is safe to say that come tomorrow Ford Bell will not be in the race.
