The question now is will the supporters of the trailing candidates allow this seat to simply go to the highest bidder, or will they rally around Jim Pendergraph and give the nomination to someone who just lost the endorsement of the main local media outlet?
Great choices we've given ourselves. Either way, I think November just got a bit closer.
Sincere thanks to all the candidates who ran clean races and for having the courage to throw your name in the hat. The first round of this primary was great to watch, and it got a lot of people involved in politics that would not have been otherwise. That's always a good thing.
