Should Wyland reconsider?

Now that Duke Cunningham has resigned, would/should Assemblyman Mark Wyland get into the Special Election to fill the seat?

Duane Dichiara said in the SDUT that Wyland is reconsidering. Despite Democrat murmurs that they'll make a play for this seat, it really is all about the Republican Primary. A 14-point registration edge is insurmountable for a Democrat to overcome in a Republican district.

Wyland would come back into the race as a top-tier candidate with a strong conservative record, not to mention plenty of money to drop. Senator Morrow remains the other top-tier candidate. Under these new circumstances, Wyland doesn't have much to lose.
