Morrell

Businessman Mike Morrell easily cruised to victory in the Republican Primary for the 63rd Assembly District.

The following numbers, embarrassing for some. say it all.

.

Candidate             Funding      Pct%    Votes
Don Kurth           $ 359,124.34  19.40%   4,963
Mike Morrell        $ 223,763.45  30.20%   7,759
Acquanetta Warren   $ 216,735.61  12.10%   3,134
Pat Gilbreath       $ 144,348.69  10.30%   2,655
Paul Chabot         $  84.351.95  23.20%   5,941

A few comments. The independent expenditure by the HMO’s hurt Kurth. Chabot was a nuisance. I said Acquanetta Warren’s placement for the money raised would be very sad for her, and it was.

Pat Gilbreath had around $38,000 in the bank on 5/22. It’ll be interesting to see if it’s still there.
