Lola or Ryan?
If the numbers from last week are any indication, along with historical trends for runoffs involving a Greek split, this will be a tough hill for Lola Bovell to climb. She trails Ryan Moseley, who won the first round with about 46%-31%, with 22% for Susan Henriques.
She got the Alligator’s endorsement, which will help some. But I can guess Unite lost some greek support, although rumors of Jared’s defection have been greatly exaggerated.
In fact, Unite has also called into question the validity of last week’s election (which begs the question – why are we holding the runoff now instead of waiting for last week’s tally to be validated?). While their reasoning is off, and mine a little more secure, there does seems to be a hint of corruption or programming flaws. Which is why you never hold computerized voting without a paper trail!
So, what do you think? My money is focused on whether Lola can pull in close enough to make a respectable showing, possibly keeping her in the mix for a presidential run on the Unite-Impact-Access side of SG during next year’s free-for-fall.
