Poe’s Retention Problem
State Representative Raymond Poe may not have any serious opposition in the election, but he does have campaign commercials on the radio. Has there ever been an area pol who sounds more like a mumbling, uneducated hick? And why does the ad ask us to “vote ‘Yes’ to retain Raymond Poe”? It’s not a referendum. He’s not a judge. You either vote for him or you vote for his opponent or you don’t vote in that race. There is no ‘Yes’ option on the ballot.
