Wow. Good for Jim Cole. I knew there was a reason I liked him a lot. As I said before, the pick said a lot more about Sonny than it ever did about Cole, who will probably now cruise comfortably to re-election.
I hope Sonny got the message — this job needs to be filled with a highly qualified person who is going to serve in a capacity as caretaker while the candidates fight it out.
I again said Anne Lewis is a no brainer choice. Her qualifications are unmatched. Her knowledge of election law and the other areas of responsibility at the Secretary of State’s office are unmatched, and she’d just simply be excellent.
She may shoot me for suggesting her, but I think if Sonny wants to set a high standard in office for quality appointments, we need Secretary of State Lewis.
