Plastic Governor

Mailing campaign literature to college students: $277.50. Campaign buttons for each voting student: $650.00. Buying the mock primary: $1,650.00. Defeating Anne Northup: priceless.

There are some things money can’t buy. For everything else, there’s FletcherCard.

From Pol Watchers:

Republican Gov. Ernie Fletcher and Democratic Treasurer Jonathan Miller were the winners in a mock election of this year's governor's race sponsored by Secretary of State Trey Grayson’s office involving students at Kentucky’s public universities. The mock election began April 10 and ended today. More than 750 students participated, said a news release from Grayson’s office.

In the Republican primary, the slate of Gov. Ernie Fletcher and Robbie Rudolph got 44.6 percent of the vote, compared to 40.3 percent for Anne Northup and Jeff Hoover. Billy Harper and Dick Wilson got 15.1 percent.
