Election campaigns procedures here in the Can

So, in Fort Worth, it was commonplace for politicians, even those running for non-paying board positions to spend tons of money on campaigns. They did robocalls, mailers, telephone polling, in addition to signage and door to door campaigning. Is that par for the course here or is it usually, "let the richest candidate win"? I ask because there are so many candidates for mayor. Obviously, McClanahan has the upper hand with his money and the current mayor's endorsement. Would it be feasible for the other candidates to pool their resources to at least get some polling done so that they don't split the vote and hand the election to McC? My thoughts were that the strongest of the underdogs would have a better chance if those who polled the weakest dropped out. Also, is there a certain percentage of the votes a candidate must achieve in order to avoid a run-off? If so, that would pretty much negate my concerns about the # of people running.

Totally agree with you.
People running for mayor please show up, April 1st., 5-7 pm, Bank of America parking lot. We need a plan to defeat them.
