Runoff City Baby!!!

Sometimes you know in your gut that you did the most you could with the resources at hand. John Campbell just spent over a million dollars and bought himself a little over 36k votes. Jim Gilchrist spent about 150k and got almost 26% of the walk-in votes today at the precincts compared to Campbell's 38% performance in today's vote. Again I'll stipulate that Campbell obviously had the best absentee program of the primary compared to Jim's practically non-existing absentee GOTV. As most of you know, I am an investment advisor/managed futures specialist. I look at charts and trends all day long. I like the trend of the Gilchrist campaign right now a lot. Campbell has done nothing but go down the last month. Obviously, the NRCC is going to come in tomorrow or this week with both guns blazing and drop probably upwards of 2 million in Campbell's campaign account. That buys a lot of mercenaries, errr I mean campaign volunteers. Jim has come from basically out of nowhere to be in the position that he is in tonight. He has a chance with his current momentum to shock the entire political world on December 6th. I am going to enjoy every minute of this campaign going mano a mano with John Campbell. He ain't the Goliath that he thinks he is. Game on.

P.S. We almost beat that RINO Marilyn Brewer one on one. Have fun being a has been Marilyn. This is a conservative district. I don't want to hear anymore about how "moderate" this district is. That goes for every single RINO in the county. Scoreboard. You lose.
