County Council District 5
So the knock-down drag-out slug fest continues in the Republican Primary in County Council District 5 minus the one guy everyone seemed to respect, but by his own emission didn’t have the support to win. Jim Adams dropped out of the race Monday and endorsed Wayne Livesay.
Jim Adams was misled into believing that Fox said, printed, or polled something that he never did. Fox won’t go there. What could it be? It will come out and then Jim will have a decision to make. My question is “Will his endorsement of Wayne Livesay stand?”
It might be useful to actually get a copy of what is being asked in these polls and stated in these fliers so voters can decide if its dirty politics or not. If you have that info I am happy to post it if I can verify the material.
Anyway go read the posts and discussions that happened today at the two Republican blogs:
I notice in the comments on The Hedgehog Report some discussion of how this all started with Charlie Feaga, I am curious why some people say that. I know Charlie is supporting Livesay, but it sounds like there is some bigger back story. With Schrader backing Fox is there some of the old Feaga v. Schrader stuff going on?
I know sadly dirty politics happens. I also know it is classic tactics to claim dirty politics to smear ones opponents for doing dirty politics. The only certainty is that this race has gotten very bitter. And that raises the question when one side loses in a week, what will it do: 1) support the person that they have been trashing and has trashed them for months, 2) recognize they have another option in feisty longtime champion of west county causes Don Dunn, 3) decide they don’t have a true Republican or a true west county person and won’t vote.
