Governor, Mayor Relationship-Challenged?
I tell you, when Republican sources open up, they open up.
I’ve been informed that there may be a rift forming between Marion County and state Republicans, and it all has to do with the Marion County Prosecutor’s race.
My source tells me that Governor Mitch Daniels is not happy with Mayor Greg Ballard’s efforts to get Mark Massa elected Marion County Prosecutor. Ballard, according to my source, “did next to nothing” to elect Massa.
Of course, acting with his own PAC money, the efforts of the Governor were rewarded with a big, fat loss as Terry Curry outdistanced Massa by a little over 8,500 votes.
What does this mean? Well, if Mayor Ballard wants anything added to the state agenda, it’s probably going to have to be something the Governor wants as well. It also means that the Governor could possibly put some things on his agenda that Mayor Ballard’s Administration and handlers may not want.
Whether you believe this tidbit or not, the thought of it is interesting. Does Ballard have ANY support left?
