District 30: Senate Recap – Kotti falls to Julie Frye-Mueller. Unfortunately.

Unfortunately, George Kotti was unable to prevent Julie Frye-Mueller from winning election to the State Senate.  Can’t win them all.

While Kotti certainly had the bonafides, he lacked the experience in running a race at this level against someone who had name ID from being on the ballot across the district several times, and may have made some mistakes and mis-steps along the way. But it was not for lack of trying.

    The wording of this post suggests Frye-Mueller has won election to the state senate, but she’s still facing Gideon Oakes in the general election, and Oakes has already secured the support of many Republicans.

    George ran a good campaign and was by far the most capable and competent candidate. COVID-19, lack of name recognition across the district and a backfired PAC postcard campaign seemed to help him meet his demise. I pray that both JFM and Tim Goodwin don’t get it in their thick skulls that this was some kind of mandate and that it solidifies their obtuse, far right-wing wackadoodle agendas. On the other hand, just thank the good Lord that Florence did not make it!
