We are two days from the Democratic primaries. This may be the most important contest this year. Maybe of our lifetime. Maybe ever!
By Thursday night we will know who the Democratic candidate for mayor will be. More importantly, we will know if Democratic County Chair Tom Wade can still bring it. Or, will the insurgents upend traditional politics?
We at The Polloi have no idea, hint, prediction....of what happens Thursday. Since the reintroduction of the mayoral system, there has not been a primary for mayor in either party. We have no idea how many people will vote. We have no idea if the bulk of registered democrats, those not politically active, even know much about this race. Will they vote? Will they vote if the rain on Thursday is heavy during prime voting hours?
According to the highly respected Troy Polloi Poll, Wiltshire has it cold.*
Tomorrow, the highly prized Troy Polloi endorsements. Today, give us your predictions. Who runs better against GOP candidate Jim Gordon. What happens to Wade if Wiltshire and Team Troy wins?
