No, Jesse refused to fight and wanted to play nice. Barber has been flinging poo without much rebuttal. There is a clip of Barber saying he would be just like Gabby and then steered away from it after getting the polling data. But Jesse refused to use it.
The RNC came in with strong ads like only yesterday but then it was too late. They have been early voting since May 17th.
If it turns out the way it looks like it will, I think that Antenori will run again in the fall and probably announce tomorrow. He’s a fighter and will hold Barber’s feet to the fire.
The NRCC started running ads back in late April - running 5 different ads total.
Probably that Super PAC that ran hundreds of thousands of dollars negative ads trashing Kelly’s character and using that old clip saying Giffords “wasn’t a hero of anything” had a very negative impact.
It didn’t help that McShitty told her supporters to vote for Barber because she’s running in the new CD 2
