The man with senator Manchin is the only announced candidate for sheriff. Where are the others?

They will come. There will be about 8 candidates, five of them pretty good.They will all file to run as Democrats as they will listen to bad political advice from morons who are still living in the past.

And what will happen is this....they will split the vote amongst themselves and whichever candidate is the best known will wind up winning the Democratic primary.

Sadly, there is an end run around this that has worked for decades but most people who THINK they know about politics around here are idiots.
If I was decent candidate for Sheriff, I would file to run as a REPUBLICAN. That way, while the other seven guys are wasting their money running against six other dudes, I would wind up being the only Republican candidate and waltz right through to the general election.
At that point, I would only have to run against one person and whichever person was the better candidate would most likely win.
Remember, Bill Abraham did that decades ago and won.
Why fight over a split pie, when you can get a nomination and run in the general against one guy?

More will come, but why wait. You would think they would get to work if they wanted the job. If people don't work at this one, they won't get close. Too much at stake here!! And there has to be a new sheriff......
