For what it’s worth, Michael Powell says he’s won the endorsement of the Democratic precinct committee officers in the 2nd Legislative District over Rick Payne, another Democrat in the race.
Powell and Payne are vying for the opportunity to go up against longtime incumbent Republican Rep. Tom Campbell. (That’s longtime incumbent. Not long time Republican. He used to be a Democrat. But hey Tom, at least this time I remembered to say Republican.) And I’m pretty sure Tom lives in Roy.
I suspect Powell got the endorsement because he has not yet lost to Campbell or to another Democrat. Payne lost the Democratic primary in 2006 to Glen Nutter.
