Erik Curren Democratic candidate 20th HD
Richard "Dickie" Bell Republican candidate 20th HD
Dickie Bell scored the Republican nomination for the 20th House of Delegates in special GOP committee selection process following a public forum at Buffalo Gap High School tonight.
So it's Game On in the 20th between Bell and Curren. It's looking like a race to the middle of the political spectrum. The hard-right wing was turned away tonight. Bell is no Extreme Right Winger, and Curren is running as a fiscally moderate pro-business Democrat. Both are honorable men. A healthy debate about the economic future of the 20th district should ensue.
At this point... the lead issues are Jobs, Education, and Transportation -- hopefully not divisive social issues.
We'll see if the promise of civil discourse and economic focus holds for both sides.
