The Memphis Flyer posted the article, “And the “Winner” Is…Shelby County’s Democrats do a straw poll.”
Well, it’s a start. On the eve of early voting, which starts Friday and continues through Saturday, October 3t, the three gents pictured above have won one of the first actual votes of the 2015 election season — though it’s not (or not yet) the one they’re actually seeking.
Still, the smiles sported by these three winners of the Shelby County Democratic Party straw poll, held Wednesday night at the Spaghetti Warehouse, suggest they’re enjoying this brief taste of the proverbial Thrill of Victory. Pictured are (l to r): Charley Burch, Super District 9, Position 1; Paul Shaffer, Super District 9, Position 2, and Zachary Ferguson, Super District 9, Position 3.
