HBO — To Grapevine RE: Hammond’s Decision

Grapevine: “What I heard from those in the know today is that Freeman Duncan, the sometime Republican, was the one who orchastrated with Compton the Hammond ticket — with no courtesy call to any of the GOP leadership. Could be a bad move right off the bat to alienate party faithful who are the ones who go out and stump for the candidates. This could bode well for the Dems since it looks like there will be much dissention within the rank and file of the Repubs over this race.

DFO: Jim Hammond lost the NIC trustee race to Kristy Wood; so, he’s beatable. Mebbe even in a Republican primary. And religious conservatives are Ron Vieselmeyer’s ace in the hole. If the moderates didn’t dot all the I’s and cross all the T’s, Hammond might have trouble on the campaign trail. He can’t lay back and when by default. ‘Twill be an interesting race.
