James Anderson came very close to winning his race without a runoff. He got over 49% of the vote against two very good candidates. Most political experts believed that Giles Perkins, who ran second, shouldn’t run it off, but apparently he has decided to stay in the race. Giles received the endorsement of the New South Coalition, which apparently gave him the encouragement he needed to stay in the race. This should make the big oil companies and the GOP nominee pretty happy. James will have to raise money and go through a run-off that shouldn’t have been necessary. Clearly, Giles has a very steep hill to climb in the run-off.
Michelle Nicrosi, the candidate who ran third, ran a very good race with little financial backing. Her support in a runoff would be welcomed by either candidate and the talk around the Capitol is that Michelle currently leans toward James’ candidacy. One thing for certain is that this race was one of the cleanest and most civil of all the races in either primary, and that was most welcome by the public. Hopefully, it will carry over into the fall in all of the races.
