BP: Nelson KO’d Currie On KVNI

A Berry Picker e-mails this to Hucks HQ re: the appearance on KVNI radio this morning by GOPrimary winner Jai Nelson and write-in candidate Rick Currie, the commission incumbent: "Jai was articulate, professional and informed. Rick came on the phone about five minutes later, totally out of breath and obviously furious. He ranted about things Jai had said pertaining to the budget etc. but was almost incoherent in his ranting. At the very end it was like he remembered he had planned remarks and rushed through those, barely remembering to tell people they had to write his name in. If anyone was learning about the candidates for the first time from the radio this morning, Jai would have won by a knockout."

Question: Did anyone else listen in this morning to the 15-minute interviews of Jai Nelson and Rick Currie on KVNI radio? Reaction?
