Washington Post Calls Mayor Barnes a Winner

The Washington Post did an article on the winners and losers in the recent fundraising quarter.

The bi-partisan group of winners included former Congressman and runner Jim Ryun (R) running against Congresswoman Nancy Boyda (D). Our own Mayor Kay Barnes - a member of the CCP back when she ran for the Jackson County Legislature - is also a winner. Congrats Kay!!

I guess if Barnes is a winner in the fundraising race, that makes Congressman Grave and his hatchet man, Jeff Roe, losers. What surprises me is that Jeff Roe extracts money from his other clients (Bartle, Koster, etc.) to support the losing bids of his current clients (Chris Byrd for City Council and the failed mayoral bid of Becky Nace). Chris Byrd’s campaign address was identical to Jeff Roe’s company’s (Axiom) address (which is 2345 Grand), according to Koster’s MEC filing when he gave $500. Where's the love for Sam Graves? Is it because Jeff Roe's attack politics on the independent & neutral judiciary and universal good guy Rev. Cleaver have gone too far?

Stephen, we shouldn't hex Kay with our bravado. There are numerous examples of funding winners at the same time being election losers.

I have a specific example of that, but I'll wait to bring that up until your next Kander post.

Good point - we need to keep the good vibes flowing.

It's Dan that is pushing Kander. I am going to make an attempt not to push my views on primary candidates on the CCP. I may stumble, but that is my goal. Hold me to it and I will look forward to you dinging Dan on his next Kander post.

I'm genuinely excited about the Barnes numbers, and I'm hopeful about what it means for this race. Graves has been an absolute joke in Congress -- as bad as Talent. In other words, he's not as bad as Todd Aiken, but he's sure as hell no Ike Skelton either.

Glad to see the CCP being supportive. Hopefully other local blogs will start following suit.

When is lathrop and gage going to stop being a front for Jeff roe?? It almost sinks to the level of a "maf.." front. He subleaes from Lathrop, he is part of their phone system and look at Graves'lastest financial disclosure. Graves has to reimburse Lathrop for long distance calls. Does terry brady run the firm and no sense of decency is left. Roe attacks the Missouri Plan from inside THAT law firm??????????

They will miss the aion gold and they will try their best to play this game to get the joy.As long as they earn the aion online gold they will be happy and they think the game is very interesting. Of course they have to have a lot of aion money by themselves. Sure, that process of achieving will have its unpleasant and disagreeable aspects.I am lonely so I play the game and buy aion gold to give my friends.They also give me a lot of cheap aion gold while playing the game.

These 2 spells will make you pretty much rohan crone invincible with nearly no need for potting. For your PVP you are gonna need to rely on your ability to maximize your Rapid Lock spell and be able to use your rohan gold to Health to mana spell efficiently. They problem for a typical Dekan Sage build is to not supply the rohan online crone needed to sustain these spells. Mana guard is where this build is going to shine and make you pretty much rohan money invincible for 60 seconds which is more than enough time to dispatch most classes in PVP. Rohan is cool so far, much easier than most free games without any rohan online gold that starts spazzes on you.
