CQ Politics featured a piece today on Tom Price’s Primary opponent, John Konop.
Yet Price has drawn a vigorous — though long-shot — challenge in the July 18 Republican primary from first-time candidate John Konop, a local businessman with experience in the credit-card processing industry, who is trying to portray himself as a more steadfast Republican than the incumbent.
I definitely this is a long shot, but I honestly never thought it would ever get to a point where Konop actually got any attention. As I understand, Tom Price is pretty popular in the 6th district. Either way, how Price does in the Primary will say a lot about what could happen in the future. He needs to get 65% of the vote to rule out any real opposition from coming along down the road.
But, let’s face it … Tom doesn’t have anything to worry about!
On the campaign side, I think I have seen one Konop sign, and that is the extent of where I have seen his name.
