I listened to the second TV ad by Dr. Siobhan Dunnavant and it was better but she just could not resist taking a jab at the lawyers who wrote Obamacare!

The problem with her anti-lawyer campaign is – I am reasonably sure she is being cynical about it.  I am sure she is ready to hire a great lawyer if she or her business needed it (I have a lawyer for her if she needs one:  Eddie Whitlock!) and I am sure she did in the past.

I will not allow lawyers to be used as a punching bag for ambitious politicians.

Speaking of Eddie Whitlock – I looked at the VPAP numbers and the media and I see this:

Dunnavant and Janis will duke it out on TV – Janis knows this is probably his last chance to run and so does Dunnavant (for different reasons) and I think it is a waste of money considering the limits of the district.  Janis got the T-D endorsement but those kind of things are not as critical as in the past.

Now Vince Haley is doing a nice ad on radio (what I would do) very impressive.  We’ll see if I should open a campaign manager business after this election.

But Whitlock has about 25 grand left – and he’s going with mailers to each house (I assume those likely to vote in a GOP primary) with a positive message.  Will it work?  I can only say:  Watch out for Whitlock!

If I had to say what will happen – I think it’s now between Janis and Haley and maybe Whitlock is coming up the rail fast – but will his positive campaign and Whitlock Test (I am stealing it if I run for office and I told Eddie so!) be enough?

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
