Interesting note in the Argus this AM:
A Republican state senator survived a primary challenge from a former lawmaker who sought to connect with Donald Trump supporters and other anti-establishment voters.
Sen. Deb Peters of Hartford received 56 percent of 1,010 votes cast in the District 9 primary, defeating Lora Hubbel, who earned 43 percent of the vote.
“I think it just proves that the positive messaging works,” Peters said Tuesday night.
Hubbel blamed her loss in part on Republican bloggers, which she called the “ogres of the Republican party.”
Read it all here. Upon reading this in the Argus this am, an artistic friend was kind enough to send this over..
Well, you do know Ogres are like onions. We have many layers.
Getting out of the brain of Lora Hubbel, and back into reality, the reality was that this was her petty way of trying to portray her ill-fortunes in the race. She didn’t lose the race, as much as Deb Peters dominated it.
Deb Peters absolutely worked her butt off as hard as I’ve ever seen any candidate run, and she did an exemplary job. At the same time Lora brought crazy, unfounded smears.
Believe me, I’d love to say it was all my doing. I’d wear it as a feather in my Twins cap. But I can’t in all honesty do so, because it was all Deb, and Lora wasn’t competing at anything resembling a competent level.
