    Why would unions be interested in the secretary of state’s race? Probably because they think she’s going farther. Obvious that Grimes is for sale with the corrupt unions. I thought Grimes might be a breath of fresh air, but with so many of the union bosses stepping behind her I have changed my mind.

    I agree with ‘who cares.’ Grimes has promise, but she is appearing like “just another.”

    I think we need maturity and experience in office. Nothing against the girl, but Grimes is a little too green for my taste. Secretary of State is too high of a position for someone with no experience.
