Reportedly often out-of-state with Virginia a regular destination where a small inn was purchased and previously mentioned on MSV, a Beth Mason third bid for mayor is suggested as under contemplation.
Other sources previously close to the controversial lightning-rod aren’t denying the matter; they’re simply not talking. A well-funded bid for mayor would throw a likely matchup of Freeholder Anthony Romano vs. Mayor Zimmer on its ear.
MSV reported just earlier in premium one former campaign manager in Mason’s 2011 re-election bid for City Council, Ryan Yacco was one of several senior political consultants set for Team Romano.

Talking Ed Note: At first this rumor tied to witness sightings of Beth & Ricky Mason the morning after the election was thought inconsequential and inconclusive. It’s changing based on succeeding days and multiple sources since. Always go with multiple sources; a Horsey tradition.
Consequently, the national scene sporting a Hillary Clinton concession on Election Night than taking it back to join recounts in victorious Trump states is also said to be part of a comeback strategy by sources close to her.
Ron Fournier, Associate Publisher of Crain’s Business and political writer at The Atlantic suggested exactly that in a series of twitter posts.
Raising doubts about legitimacy of election, even w/out overturning result, is part of Clinton’s plans to keep her options open for 2020
