Senate 16 Preview
This race looks like geography versus name. Diane Franklin has geography on her side while Justin Brown has his family’s name. Neither has raised much money. Franklin gave $100K to her own campaign, while Brown relied on his father’s left-over campaign money.
Meanwhile Keith Fredrick hasn’t raised much money or done much campaigning. He’s from Rolla, same as Brown, leading some observers to wonder if he’s simply on the ballot to siphon votes off from Brown.
This is one of the raised where an independent expenditure could come in. A PAC, Team Justin, was formed. Justin’s dad, Doc Brown, has consistently carried the anti-union legislation which Humphreys adores. It wouldn’t surprise me to see him come in with an IE to help Brown in the final weeks.
