Here are a few observations from the Jefferson County Democratic Party’s Ford Dinner. This is the local party’s main fundraiser.
Using the time honored method of who has the largest number of people wearing a campaign sticker the Miller-Maze team dominated the event.
Most people were not wearing stickers for any candidates or for only Jack Conway.
Six candidates attended but visible support for Miller-Maze (those wearing the stickers) were 5 to 1.
The count was over 40 Miller-Maze stickers on a crowd of over 300 no one else had over 5
Only a handful of cronies & staff had Bashear-Mongiardo stickers. The same was true for Lunsford-Stumbo and Henry-True.
Interesting enough no one was wearing Richards’s sticker or a Gatewood sticker.
I guess Jody and Gatewood share the same problem; they don’t have enough money to buy stickers.
By the way how much money do these guys have? Jonathan Miller and Irv Maze have been the only ones to be open with the voters on fund raising.
With the other guys it seems to be just politics as usual.
