The old amateur boxer sure won yesterday’s round.
Of course, the match isn’t over. And Governor Easley has more fights ahead. But he showed yesterday he can slip a punch – and land a few of his own.
If I was a federal prosecutor, I’d think twice about going in the ring with him in front of a jury.
Mark Binker of the Greensboro News & Record and James Romoser of the Winston-Salem Journal asked if I believed Easley didn’t know where his headquarters was or how the coordinated campaign worked.
The last thing you want is the candidate hanging around the headquarters. He should be talking to voters.
And even when I was in campaigns I never understood coordinated campaigns.
But one thing hit me about Easley’s performance.
If he had done that with reporters from the start, could he have avoided this fight?
