Sheriff Deen draws first opponent in 20 years
It will be interesting to see who (if anyone) among the current power structure comes out in support. I don't know McConnell, but I have to agree with nearly every comment I've heard to the effect that there is no way Deen will be defeated. It will take deep pockets to even make a credible run for the office.
Going into this election cycle, Deen has approximately $500,000 in his campaign coffers.
Again, until we see whether or not McConnell has a power broker in his pocket and some financial resources lined up, it's hard to see a real race develop.
This is not a swipe at McConnell, just reality as I see it.
