Chuck Williams Gives up on the Party

Chuck Williams is no longer seeking the Democratic party’s nomination for the state senate’s 7th District. Williams has left the party and is now running as an independent. But unlike some recent party defections, this one isn’t ideological. It’s personal.

Williams has had a tough time getting people, including Democrats, to take him seriously as a candidate. However, the final straw came when the state’s Democratic Party chairman, Chip Forrester, said on the Hubert Smith Radio Show on WUTK that there was only one Democratic candidate, Randy Walker, running for the seat. This slip-up occurred the day after Forrester met Williams at the Dems’ monthly meeting at Shoney’s on Western Avenue.
