John Buckner is now leading incumbent Cindy Acree in the race for district 40’s State House seat, having out-raised her by a 2-1 margin in the last month.
Considering the significant advantage that Re. Acree should have in this race, the fact that she is falling behind is significant. I’ll leave it to the comments to discuss what it means, but there is no denying that Acree is faltering in one of the most important districts in the state (as far as party control of the House is concerned).
