Which has better standing, who you are or what you stand for? In Forth Worth, Texas two gentlemen are vying for House District 97. One is a well know gentlemen throughout Forth Worth and has laid roots. Bob Leonard Jr. is a former lawmaker and a one time department store owner. The other is a newcomer to the block, Craig Goldman. Goldman is young and fresh, although he lacks lawmaking experience he has been around behind the shadows. He was an aide for former U.S. Senator Phil Gramm. Although Leonard has identification associated with himself, Goldman has raised the most amount of money and an ample amount of supporters. Goldman is laying down platforms and picking sides to support based on current issues. Leonard on the other hand is standing by idle, waiting to see what moves that his constituents are going to make so he can then in turn make his. I think that you’re political platform is most important to voters when they go to the polling booth to make their decisions. Unfortunately our United States citizens tend to side with the most popular candidate. We identify ourselves with faces instead of the meaning behind the face. Leonard will most likely come out on top because he has created a name for himself in the city of Fort Worth. People are going to remember him for Leonard’s Department Store, instead of Goldman as the man that stood behind Phil Gramm. As the old saying goes, “It’s who you know, not what you know” that counts. Although Goldman may have the knowledge of the campaign, Leonard is the most popular.
