Has Izzy promised Rene a plum?

What is going on between Izzy Martin and Rene Antonson? I know that Izzy used to work for Rene and there seems to be a very tight relationship between the two, with each other’s supporters claiming to be the better Republican.

So why does Rene seem determined to undermine the voters’ choice? Is there a deal in the wind? Has Izzy offered Rene a plum for joining the race as a write-in candidate and taking votes away from Sutherland? I know of no other reason why Rene would think, after being rejected three times by the voters of District 4, that he could possibly win on his fourth try as a write-in candidate. We supported and voted for Rene in the primary, but he lost and someone needs to tell him he lost . The Republican candidate for District 4 is Robin Sutherland! All true District 4 Republicans will vote for her.
