Russ Carnahan showed up to his election results watch party last night with a concession speech written on some campaign flyers, folded up in his back pocket.” Minority […]

Clay on Carnahan Challenge: “He Doesn’t Have a Chance”

February 28th, 2012 · No Comments

Clay shouldn’t be so confident, especially after the hit piece the Post Dispatch put out on him on Sunday. Clay  said he wasn’t worried about facing a fellow Democratic incumbent. He said the new First District includes only 20 percent of Russ Carnahan’s old district. “He doesn’t have a chance,” Clay said. “Eighty percent of […]

(here, here, here, and here) You can’t blame though, they’re only following the lead of their boy. Not a great strategy to endear yourself to black community though. Have the Carnahan’s forgotten how bad […]
