IPSE Welcomes Marvin Scott to The Trading Board Even As Some Are Asking How?
In what seemed to be surprise by some (Republicans) and relief of others (Democratic voters) Carlos Mays came up a little short in his bid to challenge Congressman Andre Carson in the fall as perennial candidate Marvin Scott (MSCOT) captured the Republican nomination in a three way race.
We're not privvy to what the party did or didn't do however we did find it ironic that Republcian slated candidate for sheriff Dennis Fishburn (DFISH) prevailed against his well funded challenger yet Carlos the rising star for local Republican was beat rather handedly by a guy without the party apparatus and using his own money for yard signs. Some are wondering how this could have happened particularly with the wide range of outcomes. It just seems odd that even with name recognition Scott could pulloff an upset of this proportion. And if so for what will be the gain for him in the fall, money, volunteers or just a wink and nod?
In the meantime we wish Carlos May well and hope to see him again soon. In the meantime we welcome Marvin Scott to the trading board.
P.S. Marvin, we think you need provide an updated photo if you're serious about challenging Congressman Carson in the fall. Pretty is as pretty does...
