From the KDP press release:
Alexander is the owner of MJ&M Sales, a mining supply company. He previously served as State Representative and is prepared to begin work in the House Chambers immediately.
“I was pleased to learn tonight that Scott Alexander will be the Democratic nominee for the 84th House District vacancy. The nomination process shows that Democrats continue to work together as a united front to nominate quality candidates,” Chair Jennifer Moore said. “Scott’s prior experience in the legislature makes him uniquely qualified to fill this vacancy for the remainder of the term and work to help make the transition smooth for the next Democrat who will be elected in November.”
Is it just us or is it completely silly that the KDP didn’t bother, you know, running someone who is actually on the ballot in 2008 for the 84th District House seat? Why not run someone who could use the next nine or ten months to develop a following and name for themself?
And why isn’t the RPK fielding a candidate?
