I think Kathleen wins today because while she hasn't run the best of campaigns (relying too heavily on insiders and running a negative ad that has clearly angered some voters), Peg has run an absolutely horrible campaign.
But, do we care?
If we are happy with Ms. Lautenschlager's performance, who cares about her campaign.
We care because this thread is not about why you voted for so and so, but how each candidate will fare in the primary which is largely a result of how well they campaigned.
Good point, though I am not certain how unbiased this forum would ultimately be in analyzing the shortfalls or not of the Republican candidate's campaign.
And, even if we do undertake a careful analysis, to what end? Predicting the winner?
I guess - at some point - analysis of how the campaign was run becomes much less important to me than the person seeking office.
Granted, I would like the best candidate to get their message out and persuade the most people, but - sadly - even I am not so naive to think this happens very often.
