Have you noticed that Prosecutor Mike Sanders is running around a lot with his hand stretched out asking folks to take out their checkbooks? It's no secret that Sanders has held several fund raisers over the past couple of weeks for his bid for county executive. Just this week he had a swell one at the Uptown kicked off by vanquished primary opponent Charles Wheeler.
Why is Sanders needing money now considering his Republican challenger Bob Gough says he expects to spend less than $1,000? And most Repubican heavyweights are now backing Sanders, including Warren Erdman, who recently co-hosted an event for Sanders. Well that hard-fought primary win didn't come without a price.
Sanders started September almost $41,000 in debt from the primary and he needs to get that paid off. After all, he's got a campaign war chest to replenish for future campaigns.
Speaking of Erdman, we should know next week whether all the deal making going around lately with Democrats has secured him a seat on the Jackson County Sports Complex Authority.
