T-minus 2 Days
(North C-town | 3 November 2019) --
How did anyone think that Steve Horton skipping the Rotary/Kiwanis Forum last week was even possibly a good idea? I guess they're taking a page from the Marcello Banes playbook - skip everything & hope for the best. Well, it worked for the Chairman, so...why not, I guess?
Snatching defeat out of the jaws of victory has seemingly & apparently been the M.O. for basically the entire campaign season of Team Horton. If there was a single race in this municipal election cycle that should've seemed like a lock, the smart money was on this one; however, these recent events, along with some other key gaffes - previously having politicized the DB/Bard situation & then later trying to call out Johnston & McKelvey for not attending the meeting put on by the attorneys looking for potential clients (only to realize the error & then deleting its original post) - has to make one wonder about the judgement of this campaign.
And, to that point, when I first heard that Ronnie Cowan, Newton Co. BOC 5 Rep & honorary Democrat on the Newton Co. Board of Commissioners, was actually incorporated into Horton's campaign literature, I simply couldn't believe it. "He's not that tone deaf," I said to a particular person, "send me photos," I said.
So, they did...
|Cowan's all like: "For The Win, Steve!"|
I'm just kind of thinking out loud here, but, it's kind of interesting to ponder, no?
One more editorial endorsement coming up tomorrow & a full REAL Politick Edition first thing Tuesday AM.
Thanks for reading, guys. See you next time.
