Donnelly to Challenge Harris?

Sources from the East (Columbia and St. Louis) are chattering about the possibility that St. Louis County State Representative Margaret Donnelly may be tossing her hat in the ring to seek the Democratic nomination for State Attorney General. By all accounts, Donnelly is a fine person and a traditional Democrat, and I'll be happy to support her for a different state-wide office. But I really don't think her legal experience (Her website reports, "[a]s an attorney in private practice, she has been appointed regularly by the courts to represent children as the guardian ad litem in custody matters") stacks up to Jeff Harris' experience in the Attorney General's office.

I also appreciate the fact that Jeff has demonstrated more leadership in Jefferson City (House Minority Leader), and the fact that he has been all over the state introducing himself and asking for support. We need an Attorney General candidate with relevant legal experience and appeal to that portion of Missouri which lies outside of the I-270 loop. I think Jeff Harris is the better candidate, and I hope that the rumors of Margaret Donnelly's challenge are mistaken.

(As noted above, "Posts here do not necessarily reflect the official position of the CCP." The CCP has not endorsed Jeff Harris or anyone else for the post of Missouri Attorney General.)

So what KC-area folks are going to run for AG? Our city suffers from a dearth of people in leadership posts in state-wide office and in the General Assembly leadership.

Dan Ryan said...

I hope that no KC-area folks are going to run for AG. Primaries are expensive, divisive, and usually unnecessary.

Stephen Bough said...

Jeff spent numerous years here in KC - he's one of our own.

Claire McCaskill holds a state-wide office.

Paul LeVota is #2 in the House, and will be #1 if we can get a Democratic majority.

I hate to disagree with Dan, but I hope lots of KC-area folk run for AG. I hope every single KC area Republican runs, and fights dirty for it.

Rep. Paul LeVota said...

I know both Jeff & Margaret very well. They are both OUTSTANDING leaders. It is very telling that someone wrote that they hope that "every single KC area Republican runs and fights dirty for it." In truth, that is the only way the Republicans will win this one, whether it is Jeff, Margaret, or a leader from Jackson County. This year our choices of candidates are far superior.

Rep Levota -

I'm the previous anonymous commenter, and what I was trying to say is that I hope the republicans have a big, nasty, ugly fight. I'm on board for Harris all the way. He's the best candidate, with all due respect to Ms. Donnelly. We need to win this race, and we can't afford to take a chance on a a family lawyer who has no support beyond 270.

Rep. Paul LeVota said...

Hey anonymous,
Got ya! I misunderstood your post. I completely agree with you! We HAVE TO win the AG race.

Later my friends told me that if I want to play the game better I should go to earn the 9Dragons gold, so I was very quickly risen to thirty levels, and then I started to play the game alone.I spend a lot of 9 Dragons gold to treat myself in this game. However she was also very sad when I was hurt, she was sorry about this to me and I did not complain her at last. I was very happy and we went to buy 9 Dragons gold to equip us to become strong.Today I play the game again and I can get a lot of cheap 9Dragons gold for her, I take her to upgrade and then add her experience.I have a lot of 9Dragons money and I want to give her in the game.

Even it got me crazy enough to buy Guild Wars Prophecies with some my own GuildWars Gold and Nightfall and Eye of the North. I wonder to know why are not you guys and gals who like the PVP concept buying this awesome game. okey, it is expensive to buy gw gold all parts. If you lack the GuildWars money, but it is worth it and no monthly costs and the game gets updated weekly at least. Once again, if anyone wants to play Guild Wars sometime add me to friends here Guild Wars Gold. And realize how much cheap gw gold I bought in the last couple of weeks, months, years. So I found this Guild Wars Factions and installed it.

I am so happy to get some goonzu gold and the goonzu money is given by my close friend who tells me that the goonzu online gold is the basis to enter into the game. Therefore, I should buy goonzu gold with the spare money and I gain some cheap goonzu gold from other players.

So to have a good attack, you should level your skill in cabal online alz. Also, get the highest level jewelry that you can equip in thecabal alz. This step depends on your skill rank, for lower magic ranks get 4 fast notice arrow skills and your cabal gold. Of course, if you have more cabal money, you can get more in the game. By the way, you can buy pet from other players in buy cabal alz.
