Byseewich always been popular in the burg. Surprised that there werent more donations ofr her. Also surprised that McMahon had none. why the top reps in this burg were a totin her around in her last race. finxle was all over her. what happened this time? guess folks jes dont have the money or the interest. for myself I like that Murphy fella. hope he wins it. rest of em should pack it in and call it a day.
