I Was Under-Optimistic – KC Voters Did a Super Job

I can’t recall ever being so happy to be wrong in my predictions and my analysis.

I thought Funkhouser’s name recognition, incumbency and anti-insider reputation gave him a free pass to the general election, and that the Star had screwed up by endorsing both James and Burke in the primary. I was wrong – the KC voters chose the two best candidates, period.

On top of that, Kay-Kohn-Kristl Crawford got trounced by Jim Glover in the first round, while Annie Presley and Anne McGregor simply failed.

No snark, no excuses, no pointing back to better performances – my predictions were wrong, and KC voters showed far better judgment than I ever anticipated.

    I pretty much had the same assumptions. And, I expect, so did Funk. it will be an interesting March election…
