This may come as a shock to some, but elections are more often than not popularity contests.
To whom might this be a shock to?
Candidate for County Judge Ricardo Samaniego.
Apparently, this guy is reading his resume at forums putting people to sleep.
Meanwhile John Cook, who politically is to the left of Bernie Sanders, is railing against taxes.
Samaniego is going around town with "I am a CEO. I did this. I did that."
Cook is going around town with "The taxes are out-of-control!!! We need to put a stop to this!!!"
Who is going to win the room?
Oddly enough it is NOT the older business-minded Hispanic guy whose family's history in the region spans generations.
It is the older liberal white guy from Brooklyn.
For all the business experience Samaniego claims to have you would think he would have a better pitch.
If he does not come up with one soon, the guy who claims wants to cut your raises, but is really going to raise them, will be your next County Judge.
