I’ve been spending the past few days trying to see how the Presidential primary will impact the 7th District race. With so many new voters coming to the table, no true “incumbent” in the race and no candidate having hitched their wagon to either Hillary or Barack – the political class is wondering where the new voters will go once they’ve cast their ballot for President.
I would have to say right now the momentum favors Dr. Woody Myers. I say this because many of these new voters likely get their news and information from television and Dr. Myers has had the strongest presence on the airwaves so far. He even has ads running on the Greg Garrison show. (I consider that either really brave or really brazen).
I saw my first Carson television ad this morning and Carolene Mays has a radio commercial. I have yet to see or hear anything from David Orentlicher. So unless this dynamic changes, I think the new voters will trend towards what they see on television and right now it’s Woody Myers.
