Perennial candidate decamps to New Hampshire

Wednesday, Aug 21, 2013

* I wasn’t aware that Andy Martin had left Illinois. From a press release

New Hampshire U. S. Senate candidate Andy Martin says aid to Greece should be on the 2014 U.S. election agenda

Andy is circulating a letter seeking the support of Greek-Americans to “put the issue of [aid to] Greece on the 2014 election agenda”

But he’s still bashing Mark Kirk

I am committed to stopping the defamation of Greece by politicians such as Mark Kirk, and the creation of renewed respect for the crucial role Greece plays as Turkey increasingly slips into the orbit of radical Islam.

* Martin received 37,480 votes in the 2010 Republican US Senate primary. Kirk received over 420,000.

His long history of campaigns

# U.S. Senator from Illinois, 1978 (Democratic primary)
# U.S. Senator from Illinois, 1980 (Democratic primary)
# U.S. House from Connecticut, 1986 (Republican primary)
# President of the United States, 1988 (Democratic primary)
# Governor of Florida, 1990 (Republican primary) 4th of five candidates 28,591 votes (4.30%)
# U.S. House from Florida, 1992 (Republican primary)
# Florida State Senate, 1996 (unsuccessful Republican nominee)
# U.S. Senator from Florida, 1998 (Republican primary) 2nd of two candidates 184,739 votes (33.60%)
# President of the United States, 2000 (Republican primary)
# U.S. Senator from Florida, 2000 (unsuccessful independent candidate) finished 7th of seven candidates with 15,889 votes (0.27%)
# U.S. Senator from Illinois, 2004 (Republican primary, removed from ballot according to Illinois State Board of Elections)
# U.S. Senator from Florida, 2004 (Republican primary)
# Governor of Illinois, 2006 (Republican primary) 5th of five candidates 6,095 votes (0.83%)
# U.S. Senator from Illinois, 2008 (Republican primary) 2nd of three candidates 240,548 (33.85%)
# U.S. Senator from Illinois, 2010 (Republican primary) 5th of six candidates 37,359 votes (5.0%)
# President of the United States, 2012 (Republican primary)

The guy has filed a ton of lawsuits, so be careful in comments.

    (Crickets)

    Thank you.


  2. - Keep Calm and Carry On - Wednesday, Aug 21, 13 @ 10:51 am:

    I was wondering what happened to good old Andy.


  3. - Spliff - Wednesday, Aug 21, 13 @ 10:52 am:

    Maybe he should go run for office in Greece?


  4. - CircularFiringSquad - Wednesday, Aug 21, 13 @ 10:53 am:

    Love it when it is a slow day and the whackjobs get some CaptFax time…btw WSJ sez Chase now being probed for nepotism hiring abuses over seas and mentioned in a RS article about two rich kids with really messed up parents…apparently BankerBilly’s guys were skimming the kiddos cash…”allegedly”


  5. - Ron Burgundy - Wednesday, Aug 21, 13 @ 10:54 am:

    I’m sure he will get a fine turnout to cover his New Hampshire candidacy at his presser in central Florida.


  6. - 47th Ward - Wednesday, Aug 21, 13 @ 10:59 am:

    I think Maine might have been a better state for Martin. They seem to like strange candidates there. Plus, he’d be closer to Greece (and further from Illinois).


  7. - Anonymous - Wednesday, Aug 21, 13 @ 11:04 am:

    Wasn’t there something about an allegedly unpaid court-imposed judgment for frivolous court filings/alleged outstanding warrant — perhaps from FL?


  8. - Excessively Rabid - Wednesday, Aug 21, 13 @ 11:06 am:

    I would have said just go away. Apparently he’s already done that.


  9. - Demoralized - Wednesday, Aug 21, 13 @ 11:08 am:

    Is there a large Greek population in New Hampshire? Greece is way up on my list of things I’m worried about. Who wouldn’t vote for a guy who thinks Greece is getting the shaft?


  10. - Demoralized - Wednesday, Aug 21, 13 @ 11:11 am:

    Andy Martin - the man from Illinois, er, Florida, er, New Hampshire, and possibly Greece.


  11. - Keep Calm and Carry On - Wednesday, Aug 21, 13 @ 11:18 am:

    Circular Firing Squad - don’t forget the RTA report issued late yesterday:

    “Metra officials repeatedly misled the public when they insisted that an unusually large severance package for former CEO Alex Clifford saved taxpayers millions of dollars in potential litigation costs, a bruising report from the Regional Transportation Authority suggests.”

    Nothing better than an evening release during the dog days of summer, is there?


  12. - Soccermom - Wednesday, Aug 21, 13 @ 11:27 am:

    Or, as Soccerdad and I always call him, Anthony Martin-Trigona.


  13. - A guy... - Wednesday, Aug 21, 13 @ 11:30 am:

    If he’d just move 100 miles east from NH…


  14. - haverford - Wednesday, Aug 21, 13 @ 12:05 pm:

    Wow, that was one of the more rewarding Wiki entries I’ve ever read.


  15. - girllawyer - Wednesday, Aug 21, 13 @ 12:16 pm:

    Go Soccermom. I was beginning to think I was the only one who remembered him from his hyphenated days.


  16. - And I Approved This Message - Wednesday, Aug 21, 13 @ 12:27 pm:

    Soccermom and girllawyer - to be completely precise, he used to be Anthony Robert Martin-Trigona. He must have had big business cards.


  17. - titan - Wednesday, Aug 21, 13 @ 12:44 pm:

    === The guy has filed a ton of lawsuits, so be careful in comments. ===

    But has he ever won one? Has he even gotten past the motion(s) to dismiss in one? And if he wasn’t judgment proof, he’d have paid out a lot too.


  18. - MrJM - Wednesday, Aug 21, 13 @ 1:21 pm:

    Just one question: Did the door hit him on the way out?

    – MrJM


  19. - train111 - Wednesday, Aug 21, 13 @ 1:21 pm:

    He must have given up his investigation of Obama’s birth certificate. He was on the Frank Marshall Davis is Obama’s true father bandwagon for a while.


  20. - ChrisB - Wednesday, Aug 21, 13 @ 1:22 pm:

    Well…bye!


  21. - walkinfool - Wednesday, Aug 21, 13 @ 2:19 pm:

    He could win in Guam, maybe, and get some honorary non-voting position.


  22. - Anonymous - Wednesday, Aug 21, 13 @ 2:36 pm:

    Demoralized, it seems that Mr. Martin’s campaign strategies are evolving into what just about everyone else does. Greece makes just about as much sense as some of the countries and related “causes” others choose.

    With that now pretty much SOP, the question is becoming “Was this one at least smart enough (and honest enough with himself) to figure out just how many votes all that would actually turn into for him?

    Pandering, it seems, is much more complex than it seems.


  23. - Anonymous - Wednesday, Aug 21, 13 @ 2:42 pm:

    Sorry, been bogged down in alot of “as it seems” analyses the last few days and it shows in my writing. That should have read:

    “Pandering, it seems, is much more complex than most of us would imagine.”


  24. - Midstate Indy - Wednesday, Aug 21, 13 @ 2:56 pm:

    He finds his highest poll numbers from Illinois…


  25. - Allen Skillicorn - Wednesday, Aug 21, 13 @ 3:21 pm:

    How can we miss you, if you won’t go away?


  26. - Richmond - Wednesday, Aug 21, 13 @ 11:20 pm:

    Darn. Was really hoping for possible Plummer-Martin or Martin-Plummer ticket in 2014..
