Riley, Brooks Victorious in Marshall County GOP Straw Poll
Below are the results:
The Gov numbers seem relatively consistent with what you'd expect, especially considering that Moore's strength does not usually lie in party regulars.
And as you might could glean from the LG results, Brooks was the only candidate to attend the pre-poll forum.
Marshall County Chair Jason Upton's thoughts on the proceedings:
"Mo Brooks simply did an outstanding job in the Lt. Governor's forum. I don't think I've ever heard a candidate for Lt. Governor who had such a clear vision and so many ideas and such a grasp on what he would do if elected. Its clear Mo Brooks is a true conservative running for Lt. Governor. And that's what Marshall County Republicans appear to want."And Mo Brooks' reaction to what promises to be one of the high points of his campaign:
"I am very gratified by Marshall County's strong support.”Even though Mo Brooks engages in the dreadful habit of citing himself in the third-person, it's good to see Mo Brooks get a notch in his belt as Mo Brooks has been working the campaign trail as hard as anyone.
"I believe the reason for Marshall County's strong support is simple. Republican voters want conservative leadership, and Mo Brooks is the only proven conservative running for Lt. Governor.”
