10 things I think I think about why Deveron Gibbons and Scott Wagman lost

in Peter/The Bay and the 'Burg by

1. Both Gibbons and Wagman hired campaign managers who have yet to prove themselves in a significant, competitive race. Gibbons hired Nick Hansen, who’s resume includes efforts for Angelo Cappelli and Mitt Romney, while Toni Molinaro quarterbacked the Pinellas County Democrat’s failed Vote Local campaign. Molinaro also lost her race to retain her precinct in PCDEC. Neither manager’s work history was exactly confidence inspiring.

in The Bay and the 'Burg by

10 Things I Think I Think

in Peter/Statewide by

If Charlie Crist’s all-out TV ad blitz and statewide bus tour didn’t widen the gap between him and Tom Gallagher, the response by Gallagher’s campaign certainly exacerbated the situation. The Gallagher campaign sent protesters to a Crist rally, they distributed a very lame Top 10 list about Charlie’s bus tour, they’ve released useless media bulletins, etc., etc. It’s becoming apparent how bush-league Gallagher’s campaign is being run. Of course, I just hate the message Crist is delivering: “I’m a Ronald…
