TKC EXCLUSIVE AND BREAKING NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY MAYORAL CANDIDATES SCRAMBLE TO EARN JASON KANDER ENDORSEMENT IF/WHEN JOLIE JUSTUS DOESN'T MAKE GENERAL ELECTION CUT!!!
Let's call this one . . .
THE PLIGHT OF THE KANSAS CITY DEUCE . . .
Here's the long and short of it . . .
KANSAS CITY MAYORAL CANDIDATES DESPERATELY SCHMOOZE TEAM KANDER TO EARN THE BACK UP NOD IF COUNCIL LADY JUSTUS DOESN'T MAKE IT TO THE GENERAL ELECTION!!!
Yes, the daily rag is desperate to recast Councilmember Jolie as the front runner but that seems silly given how easily she dropped out of the fight when confronting a real challenger. Like it or not, the double take eroded the confidence in her decision-making among the hardcore local political pundits.
The reality, Kansas City voters beyond Midtown would be hard-pressed to pick her out of a crowd. Her popularity outside of the small pond of lawyers and social justice advocates is virtually nil and all of the social media spamming in the world isn't going to change this fact.
And so . . .
BOTH TEAM QUINTON AND TEAM TAYLOR ARE NOW IN THE HUNT FOR SOME OF THAT SECOND HAND KANDER LOVE!!!
They say that politics makes strange bedfellows and this crowded contest is going to get downright freaky before it's all said and done.
Council dude Taylor has some pretty great Democratic Party connections that should appeal to the Kander camp.
Meanwhile, Councilman Quinton still has the love of the KCMO Black Community political elite which should garner a nice bit of street cred for the inevitable Kander comeback that's already being hinted at via Twitter.
And so, in this crowded contest we see politicos looking for every advantage they can get as our BRILLIANT TKC TIPSTERS notice that Jason Kander might help determine the fate of the mayoral contest after all.
