YAWN does any one really care who the Surrogate is. Other then the surragate.
The excellent staff runs things.
The real intresting thing in this race will be the power struggle between various factions. Who is more powerful the goliath Middletown or the Two Rivers crowd?
If Fred is smart he sits this one out. It is a no win situation for him.

Mrs. Peters is from Middletown...that's a biggie. It means votes.

If she can translate outside of Midddletown, there a question. Potential to be a winner is there. Just counting votes in Middletown is a head start but can't be the whole campaign.

There's two Middletown people on the county ticket in the Dem race. That may mitigate homefield advantage for her.

A good pick, but I think it'll be a spirited selection process between her and at least one other person who is going to come forward.
