D.J. McGuire prints the transcript of Del. Chris Saxman’s interview with the Augusta Free Press:
Keep in mind, Graham didn’t push Saxman on this; he wasn’t even expecting it to come up at all. Saxman took it upon himself to disabuse Graham of the notion that Gilmore’s nomination was a done deal. That should tell you how much credibility to put in Gilmore’s victory declarations.
Of course, it would be pretty poor strategery (sp!) to tell your troops “the nomination is in the bag” when it is anything but.
Either Gilmore has this in a walk, or conservatives are getting ready to pull one of the most massive upsets in a nomination contest since Mike Farris in ’93. It can’t be both!
