Just listened to a debate on the radio between candidates for the 39th district
Midtown KC. Hyde Park and Westport areas.

Judy Morgan, Democrat, former teacher and local AFT president, is running against Jamie Landes, Republican, a foreclosure attorney.

Very interesting.

Jamie claims to be an independent who has belonged to both parties at one time or another. Judy is a lifelong Democrat.

My friend who lives in the 39th tells me Jamie just recently removed a Sarah Palin sticker from her car. How many independents are Sarah Palin fans?

They were asked a series of YES/NO questions. First question - 'Do you support a woman's right to choose?' and 'Will you support maintaining that right to choose?' Judy said "Yes" and "Yes". Jamie paused and went into a detailed answer about the issue being complicated. The interviewer interrupted her and said "Yes or no, Jamie" and Jamie said it's not a yes or no issue.

In other words, Jamie is anti-choice and afraid to admit it.

When asked who their donations were coming from, Judy said mainly friends and local unions, which she added she expected since she was a local union leader for many years. Jamie said she doesn't believe in putting a lot of money into a campaign so she only asked family for donations and was running a "grassroots" campaign on only $1000.

Don't forget to vote on Tuesday!
