I, along with all of the real pollsters, was way off base in predicting the outcome of the Governor’s race in the Democratic primary between Ron Sparks and Artur Davis. While I saw a strong momentum swing toward Ron in the race about ten days out, the polls were still showing Artur winning on June 1st by a very small margin. But all of us should have recognized that the size of the undecided vote, which at that time was over 30%, had to be bad news for Artur. At one time, Artur led in the race by over 30%. Without question, Ron Sparks ran a masterful race and deserved to win. He gained the momentum at the right time and never looked back. I have congratulated him!
Ron won an overwhelming victory, carrying all but six counties, with an overwhelming 62% of the vote. No longer will anybody underestimate his ability to campaign effectively and to get votes. Regardless of who winds up as the GOP nominee, I believe Ron will very likely be elected Governor of Alabama. I supported Artur, serving as his State Campaign Chairman, but my candidate lost. I am supporting the Democratic ticket and will vote for Ron in the fall.
