FOSTER CAMPBELL VS, KEITH GATES
EXCERPT OF COMMENTS BY BLOGGER JEFF SADOW:
"In 2002, he successfully made the natural move to the PSC, where he could be one of five regulators of an industry he regularly singled out as a villain, oil insofar as pipeline regulation. It also gave him an opportunity to rail against other regulated industries such as utilities, often carping that they were allowed too much profit at the expense of ratepayers and taxpayers
The opponent he drew this fall for reelection is a young lawyer with no political experience, Republican J. Keith Gates.
Campbell’s latest campaign finance report showed him with over a half-million dollars available, over 40 times what Gates had according to his own, and had raised this year alone 10 times what Gates did.
Gates clearly is outgunned in campaign resources and can fall back on no real specific examples of the impact of his policies."
NOTE: Professor Sadow clearly outlined why Foster Campbell will be re-elected:
1) All polling data in this race shows Campbell as extremely popular in the district.
2) Campbell has a long history of supporting the "ratepayers and taxpayers" against the big utility companies (THE CONSERVATIVE POSITION).
3) Campbell has and is using the political resources ("40 times that of Gates") to get his message out.
4) Gates has no experience or record to stand on.
