D'Annunzio lost, I'll bet to Larry Kissell's chagrin because now he'll have a true race with a significant candidate in Harold Johnson. Johnson, a former sportscaster was also the hand-picked candidate by none other than "Not Gay" Tom Fetzer.
Prior to the election, D'Annunzio was given more than an hour on a live radio broadcast where he did a live melt-down!
"If we let deranged, demented people like you choose who we have for politicians, we'll continue to have dunces and political hacks from here into the future," D'Annunzio charged. "If people wake up and see through you and your types then maybe we'll wind up with people who have the balls to get up there and really fight for what the people need."
"You're probably going to hell someday for doing this," D'Annunzio continued. "There's a special place in hell for people like you."
Unfortunate for Kissell, Johnson has the whole Republican party behind him. Many in the 8th no longer support Kissell and his blue dog voting. We'll see in November what comes of this race.
