The votes have been tallied in the 24th District State Senate race and Bob Mensch handily won yesterday's special election. Turnout was predictably low and the outcome was also predictable. Some highly paid democratic operatives thought it was a good idea to limit Ann Scheuring's exposure to the media. The Lansdale Boro Councilwoman was done a terrible dis-service. She needed to attend every forum, debate, media interview, ect. that could possibly be arranged. Now even a perfectly orchestrated campaign might not have changed the result, but this was far from that! I have seen so many ill-conceived and executed campaigns (both demo and GOP) that I wonder how these folks are entrusted with the thousands of dollars in campaign funds they spend and 'earn'.
