TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! SOUTH KANSAS CITY POLITICAL SHIFT PREVIEW!!!
Election season is moving forward and locals are watching committees forming for future fights.
To wit . . .
THANKS TO THIS AWESOME TKC TIPSTER FOR SHARING A PREVIEW OF WHAT COULD BE AN EPIC SOUTH KANSAS CITY SHIFT IMPACTING A STATE REP. SEAT!!!
Here's the news info and testimony . . .
"Apparently, Darrell Curls filed a statement of committee organization with the Missouri Ethics Commission. Admittedly, that's not much a surprise. He does that practically every campaign season after losing the last one. What's interesting here is that this time, he's put under office sought "Dist 36 St Rep." District 36 is Kevin McManus's district, who's currently in his second term. Does Darrell think he can push McManus out over this tactic? Or his intention to primary a sitting Rep in a safe district? McManus beat him handily the first time they went against each other four years ago. I'm sure he'd welcome the rematch. But could Darrell survive politically losing his fourth election in a row?"
Admittedly, South Kansas City isn't my bag but what I have noted is more than a bit of tension out that way as demographics and party affiliation shifts.
