Harry Crawford challenging Bettye Davis for her Senate seat? WTF?

Last edited Sun Aug 26, 2012, 09:08 PM - Edit history (2)

Why the hell would Harry do something THAT freaking stupid? What is he thinking here?

What did Bettye Davis ever do to him?

I was listening to "Alaska News Nightly" tonight(Tuesday night) and Sen. Davis said that Crawford actually demanded that she withdraw from the race when he first filed. Never knew the guy was that insanely arrogant and entitled. Apparently they'll have him on tomorrow night to explain himself.

Please tell me this idiot doesn't actually have a chance of winning next Tuesday.

And here's Bettye Davis' website, if this makes you mad enough to donate to her campaign:

(at this point, the only way to get donations to her in time through the site is by using the PayPal link.

2. This is the same Harry Crawford who lost three-to-one to Don Young in 2010.

 

Why would he EVER think he deserved a Democratic nomination for ANYTHING after that?

3. I'm going to go there...

 

Does Harry actually think that the Dems can ONLY hold that Senate seat if they nominate a white male?

4. Doubtful

Many minorities live in her neighborhoods. A few liberals too...We elect lots of liberals here. Not necessarily white ones.

6. Not too sure

Desperation to get back in the race...after his crushing defeat by Don Young...He had been redistricted into a more conservative district and then replaced by Lance Pruitt who ran unaposed.

7. Here's the link to Crawford's interview with Bill McAllister.

I can't believe Crawford could think this interview makes him look good.

8. Bettye Davis has narrowly won the primary.

However, she still has a hell of a fight on her hands in the fall-Crawford would have had one too, had he prevailed.
