Jessica Castleberry was a good candidate and knew that she had best be prepared to run a race. And she did not disappoint. She ran strong in the most unusual election in modern history against challenger Kevin Quick.
I think what amazes me the most about the race is that there were 551 people who were either so oblivious or contrarian that they would choose to vote for a convicted drug felon over Jessica Castleberry.
Regardless, she kicked his tail and his electoral hopes into the next century on a massive 72-28% victory. Clearly, a vast majority understood.
Castleberry will go on to face a independent candidate Brian Gentry in her fall election. Gentry should take heed with the kind of race that Castleberry ran in the primary – she knows what she’s doing.
