Stories from the US Senate race.
I know the primary for the GOP nominee is not for about
9 months but there are a lot of things already happening.
First of all as many of you probably know Diane Tebelius
dropped out of the race last weekend.It was amazing just
like clockwork all 4 of the local newspapers covered Diane
dropping out.Chris Vance of course was quoted in all the
stories.Most of the stories said that Susan Hutchison was
expected to drop out.
Now I knew that wasn't true and at the time Susan was out
of a town.Something needed to be done this simply could not
stand.I was certain Chris Vance had fed this story to the
media to give everyone the impression Mike McGavick was the
lone candidate.So I took some action and sent an email out
to all 117 State committee members letting them know that
Susan had not dropped out.
I also explained how Chris Vance and his emissaries had been
trying to get Susan to drop out.Some of the Committee members
didn't like what I had to say.That's ok it needed to be done
Chris Vance didn't like it either.Some of them were upset because
they thought Susan had hired me to work for her. Let me just state
for the record I am not now nor have I ever been an employee of
Susan's.Yes its true I am doing everything I can to help her
win. Understand she never asked me to do anything. In fact
3 months ago Susan didn't even know who I was.
While its a great story I can't tell you how it all happened.
Its deeply personal and it wouldn't be appropriate for me
to talk about.Needless to say Susan will win this race I know
it I have always known it.One final thing about this I
told Susan that if I ever become a detriment to her or
the campaign I would step aside. This is not about me
its about Susan and winning the race, nothing else matters.
Lets get back to the senate race,for a while now Mike McGavick
has been touting the fact that his campaign has raised over
700,000 dollars.Well have they?According to the Fec website to
date McGavick has raised 5,000 dollars from one contributor
the Hartford insurance group.So where's the rest of it?
Could it have actually been a bluff only time will tell.
Chris Vance and the establishment really don't like how
the race is shaping up.They believed all along that McGavick
was the one and shouldn't have any competition in the primary.
Well that's all about to change.
