But the main arguments for Nodler's success continue to be fundraising and geography and not personal likability. "I have never felt Gary was that big of a threat because of his lack of popularity," says Lawrence County GOP vice-chair Sherri George, an open Goodman supporter. "Sometimes I wonder how Gary continues to be re-elected. You never hear anybody say positive things about him," adds George.
Admittedly, that point does come from one of Jack Goodman's supporters, but it does hit at Nodler's biggest problem. The only people who like him seem to be the ones who reply to my posts.
Nodler, by the way finished third in the rankings behind Goodman and Springfield auctioneer Billy Long, who were first and second respectively.
