A New Republican Plea: Send Us Your Candidates
Kudos to Wilson Allen for sending me this graphic posted above.
Jokes aside, I've heard now that Mark Massa is indeed the lead prosecutorial candidate for slating on the Republican side. A source familiar with the Marion County GOP tells me that likely three to five other Republicans may vie for slating as well. My source did not include names.
In other news, the Indiana Democratic African American Caucus Indianapolis Chapter newsletter highlighted an upcoming fundraiser for Greg Bowes hosted by a handful of Democrats on Feb. 3 from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. at 1512 N. Delaware. Price of admission ranges from $25 to $100. Bowes was a distant third in the fundraising battle amongst candidates grappling for the Democratic Party nomination. Bowes raised over $7,000 last year for the run at Prosecutor while David Orentlicher and Terry Curry both raised north of $100K.
Curry is planning a fundraiser the same night as Bowes' event at the Broad Ripple Tavern, 745 Broad Ripple Ave. from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. Curry's fundraiser carries a hefty upper level price tag of $300, but the smallest donation level is $30. Nothing recently from Orentlicher on the fundraising front.
Big advantage to the Democrats in the Prosecutorial Pile-up.
