    •  Is he a nutter? (0+ / 0-)

      Nutter is going to win that primary.

      •  Seems likely (0+ / 0-)

        He has been a heavy contributor to Todd Akin, one of the four original Tea Party Caucus members in the house.  Akin's infamy grew this summer with his remark that "at the hear of liberalism is a hatred of God."  

        His father founded a local chapter of the Republican Assembly, which is a staunch organization that sees its role to be support for righties in primaries -- the original opponents of RINOs.  

        Curiously, he lives in Akin's district and will be running against him in the primary.  The third candidate, Sarah Steelman, is the only one of the three with experience running state wide.  She was state treasurer and lost in the GOP primary for governor in 08.  In a recent ppp poll, she had an 11 point lead over Akin, and Brunner barely registered with registered republican voters.  

        The scenario that is being discussed by lots of folks is that the two STLouis area males will split the eastern half of the state, while Steelman cleans up in the west and south, and pulls females from the east as well.  It seem possible that she could pull something like that off.  She is a strong campaigner despite being a weak speaker and a bit of an airhead.
