Armstrong will run again, but where?Is he serious? Would Armstrong pack up and move so that he can keep his part-time, $18,000 a year job? Is his life outside government that meaningless?

Democrat Ward Armstrong of Henry County is running for another term in the House of Delegates.
But the House minority leader hasn’t decided what district he will seek to represent.
Armstrong said today that he is considering moving to an adjacent district rather than staying in a redrawn district and battling Republican Del. Don Merricks of Chatham.
He’s thinking about moving into the 9thHouse district, represented by Republican Charles Poindexter of Franklin County, or the 14th District, represented by Republican Danny Marshall of Danville. Staying put also is an option.
“I’m considering all three districts,” said Armstrong, who intends to make a decision in early June. [link]
Kinda pathetic when you think about it.

* At least when I made household moves (many times) over the years, a lot more money was dangled in front of me. Armstrong's motivation? Helping the downtrodden? Couldn't he do more good as a nun?
I just don't get it.
