TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! FEAR THE REVENGE OF JASON KANDER!!! WORD IS HE'S BANKING HIS CAMPAIGN CASH FOR THE NEXT ELECTION CYCLE!!!
Rest assured that Missouri House Rep. Jason Kander is still Kansas City's favorite elected official. Sadly, this fact doesn't offset a very real polling deficit that TKC reported FIRST and was confirmed even by Democratic party internal numbers weeks later.
So, what now?
The consensus among Kansas City's political elite is that Rep. Kander won't be able to make of the difference in his race against a GOP opponent backed by Rex Sinquefield and a couple of other millionaires.
"Jason Kander is unlikely to overcome the polling deficit, so his last minute media messages might not get their original planned buy. Kander is probably considering banking the remainder of his cash for a run next cycle."
"Jason Kander is more dangerous next time around, sitting on that war chest full of money."
To wit . . .
A GREAT MANY KANSAS CITY POLITICOS FEAR JASON KANDER'S UPCOMING MOVE THE NEXT ELECTION CYCLE!!!
Because, like it or not, Rep. Kander demonstrated that his fundraising skill stands leaps and bounds of just about any other elected official in Kansas City.
While Mr. Kander's reach might have exceeded his grasp in the Missouri Secretary Of State run . . . What he showed everyone is that Team Kander is ambitious, capable and prepared work hard to stand up for their campaign platform.
It's only the current political backlash against Prez Obama, billionaire meddling, and Red State prejudice that thwarted what should have been an easy run.
Regarding political fear . . .
Consider . . .
Gov. Jay never came to Jason Kander's rescue despite a political alliance between the two that always seemed kind of one-way according to bystanders.
Mayor Sly straight up left Jason Kander hanging and didn't offer a single public show of support for Mr. Kander's Secretary Of State candidacy after the House Rep. basically put The Mayor in office.
Behind the scenes . . . More than a few Jackson County insiders are intrigued by what this City's crime rate would have looked like if Jason Kander been appointed to the County Prosecutor job.
And so . . .
KANSAS CITY'S POLITICAL ELITE FEAR JASON KANDER'S REVENGE GIVEN THAT HE DOESN'T OWE THIS TOWN'S ESTABLISHMENT ANYTHING WHEN THE NEXT ELECTION CYCLE COMES AROUND!!!
That's a very dangerous proposition and could spell trouble for everyone from Jackson County Executive Mike Sanders or even a City Councilperson or two.
Now, to be fair, Team Kander still says that this race is close and they're putting all their effort into this . . . A quick look at media proves otherwise.
Meanwhile, this Halloween more than anything a fear of Jason Kander's political ambitions is leaving a cold chill up the spine of so many Kansas City elected officials hoping to hold on to power.
