Congressional candidate Jack Davis is off to a roaring start, and he hasn't even announced if he is going to seek a third attempt at the 26th Congressional District seat currently held by Tom Reynolds that he has spent $5.6 million dollars of his own money to capture. It seems Mr. Davis cannot seem to make up his mind when it comes to potential Democratic primary opponent Jonathan Powers.
Davis recently stated about Powers, “I like the guy; I’d be proud to have him as a son". A hell of a compliment to state about your possible opponent. Unfortunately for Davis, things got a blurry when he followed up that statement with, "But my sons would be disinherited if they were pulling the stuff he did.” Huh?
Davis went on to say of Powers, other than his Army service as a captain in Iraq, Powers “has never had a real job. He’s unemployed”.
Talk about covering the full spectrum. Davis would be proud to have Powers as a son, but would disinherit him and he goes out of his way to point out his perspective that Powers has never had a real job. What a ringing endorsement for our young men and women who serve in the armed forces. In Davis' eyes, apparently military personnel never held a real job. So if I was a 20 year military man, is Davis saying that I never held a real job as well? An interesting perspective to be sure.
Davis has made strong indications of his intentions to once again enter into the race for the 26th. Davis, who turned 75 over the weekend, reiterated his commitment to spend $2 million of his own money on the race this year.
