Myers Dumps Another $356,000 Into Congressional Campaign
Dr. Woody Myers dug into his wallet today and loaned his 7th District congressional campaign another $356,000, bringing the total of his personal contributions to his campaign to over $1.6 million. Myers' decision to bankroll his campaign has allowed him to make the hotly-contested Democratic primary race a two-man race between he and U.S. Rep. Andre Carson according to recent polls. His problem is that he still trails Carson in the 4-way race. Can he beat Carson without going negative? The Carson political machine has already begun spreading nasty rumors about Myers in an effort to sideline his campaign. This is standard fare for any campaign in which the Carson political machine is involved. If you're going to take on the Carson political machine, you better show up to the fight with an AK-47 (figuratively speaking) with all rounds firing if you want to survive. Myers had better go on the offensive real quick if he wants to end on top. Otherwise, he'll be lucky to survive the next week with his reputation in tack if the past is prologue.
