Strange Move

Costello, the congressman from PA-06 who announced he was retiring, actually pulled his name off of the primary ballot. If he'd stayed on and won (without doing anything to campaign) the local Republicans could have put whoever they wanted on the ballot, but since he quit before the primary they're stuck with the random guy who got his name on the ballot, who I gather probably wouldn't have been their first choice.
