(hat-tip to OGPL) as he has hit the airwaves with his first campaign commercial. What makes this all the more troubling for the GOP is that he is not their chosen one, that title belongs to Dennis Fishburn (DFISH). So what are we to make of this news?
Let's review: You have a Chairman (TOJO) with a less than stellar reputation with the rank and file Party members and totally worthless as a fundraiser, who until recently was closerthanthis with all but indicted Carl Brizzi (CBRZ) Marion County Prosecutor who refuses to step down even after the request from the guy who has the blessing of the Govenor. Now you have a unslated candidate with enough cash to boost name recognition to move numbers enough that he could win by a squeaker.
And assuming he pulls it off an upset how then does the GOP mend fences in time to headoff juggernaut of the unchallenged Democratic candidate Col. John Layton (JLAY). Well taken collectively this information suggests to us that the Marion County GOP is heading for a disaster of biblical proportions this November and these results could set up a resurgence of the Democrats in 2011. If you are Ed Treacy you are probably doing the cabbage patch dance right now. So, what do you think?
UP: BMAC $125, ETRY $135, JLAY $130, OGPL $185
DOWN: DFISH $90, TOJO $15,
