Post-forum wrap-up (Jemal y'all)

In truth, Williams has been among the most egregious foes of “process,” transparency, and open government in district history.
But I’m sure you don’t need me to tell you that.
Serrantino-Cox may be a very worthy candidate, but I don’t think she has a prayer in this race. Williams has name recognition (à la Robert Rizzo) and Jemal has bigtime endorsements (Todd Spitzer, William M. Habermehl, Carolyn Inmon, Loretta Sanchez, et al.). S-C has none of that.
[10/19: today, reader GJ called to remind me that only Williams and Jemal's campaign statements will appear on voter materials sent out by the County Registrar. She also assures me that that's a $10 haircut on Jemal's head.]
Today, Mr. Jemal acquitted himself well. But, as I noted in my conversation with him after the forum, there is a danger that he and Moodian will split the anti-Williams vote. He acknowledged that.
And so I’m thinking that we need to get behind Mr. Jemal, a plainly good candidate who is probably the only one with a chance of beating that rat bastard John Williams.
Is he the best candidate? Maybe yes, maybe no. But it does not matter. He is the only good candidate that has a chance of beating Orlando Boy.
