It happens almost every time. My personal closest friend gets in a political race. I have to poll and analyze the contest. They have the worst advisors in the world, they run lousiest TV, and they end up losing…big time. History might be repeating itself.
Jack Kingston, to no exclusion of his opponents, has been a friend and truly treasured one since 1980. That makes both of us ancient. But I do not apologize for our age nor our years of knowing each other. Jack was there for me when I was fighting to win a GOP nomination for Lt. Governor in a year no one cared about and in in a time when no Republican could possibly hope to defeat a Democrat. He and Eric Johnson held a mosquito infested shrimp boil in my honor when few cared about me (as if they do now!).
