The outlines of state Sen. Stacey Campfield’s campaign for re-election are becoming clear. His call for a TBI investigation into an inept robopoll that harassed people with repeated calls has made polling the race suspect.
Campfield doesn’t spend money on polling. His opponent, County Commissioner Richard Briggs, has Ben Farmer as his campaign manager. Farmer is an expert pollster.
Campfield is also attacking political guru Tom Ingram on his blog, pointing out the controversies Ingram has been involved in lately. Campfield says Ingram is advising Briggs on his race and Campfield is attempting to tie them together.
Campfield will likely run against the Republican establishment, though he is an incumbent.
