Ivan Harmon has seemed to be an also-ran in the city mayoral race, trailing in fund-raising.
But Harmon has served on City Council and on County Commission. He is likeable enough to have won seven elections. He is now the only Republican candidate left in the mayor's race. He is running a low-key campaign, walking across the city, knocking on doors.
His strategy is to sneak up on his opponents and wind up in the runoff. If he edges Padgett and between them they keep Rogero from garnering over 50 percent of the total, he thinks it could happen.
