Wyatt sees the writing on the wall

Russ Wyatt is not going to run for Mayor:
Winnipeg’s mayoral race is shaping up to be straight-ahead battle between Sam Katz and Judy Wasylycia-Leis, as Transcona Coun. Russ Wyatt bowed out on Friday and Elmwood Coun. Lillian Thomas is expected to follow suit next week.
It was a natural move; it makes sense for him to get out now that Judy Wasylicia-Leis is expected to run. Curtis at Endless Spin Cycle points out that in the poll that Probe did for the Free Press Wyatt got only 7% support, compared to 36% for Wasylicia-Leis.
