TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! CHAMBER & CIVIC COUNCIL STALL KANSAS CITY MAYORAL ENDORSEMENTS!!! JOLIE JUSTUS DESPERATELY SEEKING BIZ SUPPORT!!!
As the election approaches our KICK-ASS TKC TIPSTERS note that Kansas City big biz rank among the undecided or at least among those who don't want to take sides publicly.
To wit, as of this writing, and because everyone seems to think this vote is going to be a nail-biter close call . . .
SHOCK!!! THE CHAMBER & CIVIC COUNCIL HAVE NOT YET ENDORSED A CANDIDATE FOR KANSAS CITY MAYOR!!!
This isn't a big deal for Quinton Lucas.
However, given Mayor Sly's support . . . The endorsement punt so far might as well be a slap in the face to Jolie Justus.
Here's the word . . .
Insiders Abandoning Jolie?
Insiders seem to be getting cold feet with their support of Jolie.
First, the KC Chamber, who are the quintessential insiders and thoroughly in the Jolie camp, are not endorsing either candidate. On top of that, I heard the Downtown Council made the same decision, and they are even deeper in Jolie's pocket.
Both of these groups are Jolie's bread and butter, and her inability to lock up their support might be writing on the wall. While not exactly a win for Lucas, both are a thorough loss for Jolie.
It seems that she's winning the pocketbooks of the establishment, but not their votes. We saw how that worked out for Miller. I expect she'll out raise Lucas, but who knows by how much at this point. Money alone won't win this race, and it seems she's losing ground with the establishment.
You decide . . .
