JACKSON COUNTY INSIDER: CONTEST FOR PROSECUTOR CLOSER THAN YOU THINK!!!
Election aftermath that's worth a second look . . . Recently, a trusted local insider invited us to take a look at returns in the contest for Jackson County Prosecutor.
Sure, Mean Jean garnered more votes the Jackson County is a Democratic stronghold . . . What's important here is the Tracey Chappell garnered way more votes than anyone expected.
Here's the word . . .
"Really surprised to see the Republican do so well in the primary but it makes sense. You have a lot of people who are frustrated with Prosecutor Peters Baker and her recent decisions in the face of rising crime. From letting the suspects go after they were caught vandalizing the courthouse to her decision to prosecute police . . . Her popularity is at an all time low and this will be an election where she'll have to campaign. Don't get me wrong, the margins are still in her favor BUT it's closer than anyone expected and in this election almost anything can happen."
