Here is a quick look at how the different consultants did on primary night. We need to do more research on reports to get an exact picture of who ran which campaigns, but from the available information we were able to put this together. You will see that some consultants had very good night while others were taken to the woodshed.

Keep in mind some of these companies only handled mail or phones or media and were not the general consultant running the show. It is funny how when they are involved in a losing race they explain how they really didn't have anything to do with the loss. But on those that they are involved in that win, they explain how helpful they were to the campaign and want the credit for the victory.

As the old quote goes, “Victory has a thousand fathers while defeat is an orphan!”

If we missed a race or have soemthing wrong please email us and let us know.  Once the new finance reports come out we will be able to improve this list.

Nichols, McGeoghegan and Berry Fight It Out


Wow the 72nd race between Nichols, McGeoghegan and Berry is heating up.  While most thought it would come down to the two incumbents with Berry trailing in third it had taken an odd twist. 

McGeoghegan has about 45% of her old district in the new 72nd while Nichols has out raised her opponents.  She brought in over $42k to McGeoghegan's $17k while Berry has spent about $3k.  

Nichols recently launched a negative attack on Berry claiming he lost his bail bondsman license and was not living at his home.  Berry sent out the following hard hitting video denying the claims and calling Nichols a lie.  

The big question is why would anyone need to attack Berry?  He has no no money and with only a 16% minority population it's hard to understand how he was a threat.  

Berry must be doing better then he shows on paper.  We won't get into the charges and counter charges here but you can watch the video and see for yourself.

I'm up working on candidate backgrounds tonight and came across Terry L. Wilson's bio while consuming energy drinks and thought others might need a pick me up in the morning.  I have to say it is the "best" bio I have seen.  BTW- He is running in HD 66 but we did not project him as the winner.  This may not seem as funny to you as it is to me after a all nighter.

A few lines I thought were hilarious:

"Since his inception" -I have never seen a birth described this way in a bio.

"While matriculating through various acts of service" - I'm a country boy.  Is this like making coffee?? 

"ultimately decided to give more of himself to children, families and communities"- I was going to try out for the cardinals at age 21, but I too decided I would give more of myself to children and families so I got married, had two kids and joined the Marine Corps.

"has a 6 month old son Terry L Wilson Jr" -I'm surprised a servant like this would name a child after himself,but after reading more who else would be better to be named after?

"His work ethic, drive, dedication, tenacity, unswerving loyalty and determination are awe-inspiring"- This bio inspired me to pick his opponent as the winner.

"a man on the move and poised to do major and impactful things for years to come"- Look at all he has done already at only 29, the future is bright, I'm getting my shades.

Notice his favorite quote-  "Believe in who you are, there is nothing you can't do, you can touch the sun by believing in you" Clearly he believes.

He sounds like a good guy who is helping people and I shouldn't be making fun of his bio, but I'm tired.
