Confused candidate changes nothing

This just in!

For personal reasons, the most vocal of the VP Academic candidates, Jeremy Wood, has withdrawn from the race. In his exit interview, Wood issued a deep condemnation of his former opponent, Johannes Rebane. See more in our interview, as soon as we get it up.

This would be news if this post were made in a First-Past the Post world, but we’re not in that world anymore, so this has marginal effect on the outcome. Decision theory analysis from our Senior Math Writer upcoming.

    So somebody named “Joey S” wrote a comment over on Jeremy’s website telling him that it was a bad choice to drop out of the race, and advising Sonia to distance herself from Jeremy’s endorsement since Knollies aren’t so popular. I think that’s an interesting idea. Yes, perhaps Knollies aren’t the most well-liked group on campus BUT they did get Tristan and Stef elected last year. And I guess it was Sonia’s campaign manager who notified UBC Insiders or something, so that doesn’t seem like a sign of distancing the endorsement.

    This is the most juicy thing to happen in the elections so far. MOAR SCANDAL PLZ.

    Hey Matt,
    This is Jeremy. After alot of thought I’ve decided to stick it out. I still believe Sonia’s a good candidate but I’m in this to stay. Let me know if you’d like more information.
