Schellinger Brings the Chili!

On March 18, 2008, I heard from some critics when I said Jill Long-Thompson sounded silly bragging about "momentum" and a 28% lead over Jim Schellinger when good old Jimmy hadn't "unveiled himself" to the public yet. I said it was like bragging that you have the best chili at the cookoff before anybody has tasted the others.

Well, Jim's brought his chili, and it must taste pretty good for D voters. In three weeks, Schellinger has completely wiped out that 28% lead.

Research 2000 says Jill is now at 42% to Jim's 41% with 17% undecided. I think it's fair to say that Ms. Thompson does not have "the momentum" any longer.

Expect Long Thompson to go hard negative in the next week. They bet the farm on the television ad buy, and they will need to stir up the pot if they want to fight against Schellinger's big mo'.

It's not going to be pretty.

I suspect Schellinger will win largely because he has the party organization behind him. In truth, neither candidate is very compelling and that's a shame because Daniels is vulnerable.

Long Thompson is spending the bulk of her time attempting to raise money....she doesn't have time to campaign extensively.
