Vop Osili (VOSI), demolished his intra-party rival Tom McKenna (TMCK) this weekend by a vote count of 1,215 to 388 a impressive ration of almost 3:1. On the other hand while we think the GOP has a credible candidate in Charlie White (CWHI) who ran unopposed in his slating contest, they (the GOP) seem stuck on the W/M, W/F model for candidate selection.
Now we're not suggesting that the GOP party play the "identity politics" game, however you would think that these guys (the GOP) could come up with at least one credible candidate for statewide office.
Nevertheless, we give Osili a sizable stock boost for winning his nomination for Secrectary of State and more importantly securing those southern Indiana votes that may translate into a political problem for candidate White. Not sure how this will turn out but it will be fun to watch!
