      This is a MUST read:

      The failure of the Buono campaign to stay on message regarding property taxes tells me that both her and her campaign managers are not that “swift” .

      I agree 100% with this article. Buono should not be worried about anything but the economic message.

      I was concerned at the start that she was more intent to run a crusade instead of a campaign. Well her crusade is headed to an epic failure unless she changes course very soon.

      Voters care about one thing. MONEY. Why Buono cannot see that is beyond me.
