Kansas City politicos have the future planned out quite nicely.
Luckily . . .
Our KICK-ASS BLOG COMMUNITY helps us unpack a great deal of hype behind the scenes deals.
Here's the word . . .
KCMO Councilman and Mayor Pro-Tem Kevin McManus made a political deal with Quinton Lucas.
If Lucas wins a 2nd term as Mayor, he will endorse McManus to be his successor.
No other KCMO Councilmember appears to be raising significant funds to challenge Lucas in 2023.
He's a peek at council dude McManus and his plans for a bright future . . .
A few more interesting facts . . .
Mayor Q still lists his residence near 18th & Vine on his campaign finance reports . . . That's a different story then what he has shared with his social media audience. Of course there is time to amend and we're sure his heart is pure.
Nevertheless . . .
The reality here is that Mayor Q will likely win another term without any serious challenge and mean Internets comments aren't enough to fight the power of an incumbent.
To be fair . . .
There is nobody outside of the Kansas City Star offices who EVER considered the Mayor a serious contender for Senate.
The bright side:
Mayor Q is truly unpopular with police, the Northland and taxpayer hawks . . . And so anybody brave enough to challenge him might find some semblance of support in a long shot bid.
Even better . . .
Anybody who has ever worked with Mayor Q knows that he has a propensity for saying one thing and then doing something completely different.
