The Case for Congressman Jason Smith

In the MOScout Readers Poll, Jason Smith scored last on the question concerning who will win the CD-8 nomination.  But one observer thinks folks are underestimating him.


The case for Smith is that this committee vote is not dissimilar to a leadership race.  You need about three score votes and the way to get there is through one-on-one, person-to-person contact, hard work and making a good impression.  Smith has proven he can win this kind of “small ball” race twice, most recently for speaker pro tem.


All the candidates have potent political skills, but this observer thinks Smith’s particular strengths match up well for this particular battle.
