The two-timed failed candidate for Marion County Sheriff, Davis, figures to have the support of many of the people who pushed Scott hard in 2010. That includes the always-controversial Stan Solomon, who has Davis as a frequent guest on his low-quality internet talk show.
Carson has some competition of his own. Perennial candidates Bob Kern and Pierre Quincy Pullins are giving it another run. Kern must have decided against challenging Joe Donnelly for the Democratic nod for U.S. Senate. Woodrow Wilcox rounds out the group of four Democrats running. Carson is, of course, the hands down favorite to win the nomination.
Will May get nominated? If the Republicans are smart, he will. If he does, it will be good to have a campaign based on the issues instead of one based on the things Marvin Scott took the campaign to in 2010. In the end, Carson is expected to retain his seat in the reconfigured 7th, no matter the opponent.
