This race pitted three solid Democrats seeking the nomination; a nomination that essentially ensures them victory in November. Elias Rojas, Zack Fields and Cliff Groh are all good candidates running solid campaigns. Zack Fields was quickest out of the blocks, and I expected him to run away with the election. I also expected Cliff Groh to never quite get it in gear. Cliff is a likable guy, but he prefers policy discussions over small talk like the professor you like in class, but avoid at lunchtime.
