The people in this state are quite savvy. Right and wrong, for the most part, haven't been clouded to a shade of gray, (or grey) by the politicians, lawyers, and as I call them, Academia Nuts. If you lose sight of the goal while running, and go off on some tangent, you will lose.
Our gubernatorial race has three strong candidates who have flooded the airwaves with advertisements. They have had numerous debates and speeches where they appeared at the same podium, one right after the other. I want to tell all of you that with all of these opportunities to bash each other, I haven't heard one negative comment. They have all stuck to their own ideas and have pretty much ignored the other candidates. It makes for a difficult decision. If one had gone negative, I could have at least eliminated that one.
I'm up for re-election to another 4 year term this year. In today's Primary and Novembers General Election, I am unopposed. Last election, I proved I can beat someone. (the incumbent) Now I'm anxious to see if I can beat nobody. I'll let you know how I did yesterday, tomorrow. It only took 140 and some votes to win the General last time so this could be a really low number.
