We heard a number between $700,000.00 and $1,000,000.00 tossed around for the total expenditures in support of Mike Cierpiot’s (r) campaign in this special election. There were enough of those incessant television commercials in the Kansas City media market to make one believe those numbers. If that’s truly the case, it’s somewhere between $54.00 and $77.00 per vote. Somebody got their money’s worth.

Gee, they should have just taken everyone out to dinner at a really nice Lee’s Summit restaurant.

We heard that Hillary Shield’s campaign raised and spent somewhere north of $100,000.00. That would be approximately $9.20 per vote. We’re talking working people fare here.

It looks like they’ll meet again in 2018:

.@ShieldsForMO is a classy, hardworking person. She ran a heck of a race, and she’s going to run again in 2018!

2018 will not be 2014, 2016, nor 2017.
