As reported by the Examiner both Schuh and King supported Gilchrest previously and, in King's case, were among the special guests for Congressman Gilchrest's recent fundraisers.
Will these switches of allegiance be a sign of strength for the challenger or dismissed as the Machiavellian positioning of ambitious politicians.
For consideration of the latter, let me submit the following from our friend Bud the Blogger before the announcement:
Kipke, Schuh and Dillon won't witch sides. They co-sponsored an event with
Gilchrest last week. All three have too much integrity to play both sides in
If you listened to the recent podcasts, you know we reported that Delegate King's camp was reaching out to Gilchrest to broker a deal for King's support in this race in return for Gilchrest's support of King for the 33 Senate seat in 2010. The report caused a bit of a stir and the heat from Delegate King's conservative backers apparently convinced him to switch sides.
