There will be a Republican primary debate tonight at Riverview High School between incumbent county judge Mike Lincoln and challenger Bill Haynie. There is no Democrat challenger for the seat, so the winner of the primary will be the next judge, making this race very important for the future of our county.
You may be interested to know that the debate is hosted by our wonderfully biased local newspaper & will be moderated by (recently) former White County Democrats chairman Winston Collier.
The story here isn’t about partisan politics or my general preference for Republicans. It’s just about what is proper & fair to the voters of our county. I can tell you from personal experience that the local paper does nothing by accident. Everything is an orchestrated effort to advance their agenda.
So, we must ask:
- Why would the paper have a leader in the Democrat party moderate their debate?
- Which candidate stands to benefit most from this collusion?
- Why is the judge going along? Doesn’t he have a platform to say this is inappropriate & raise some questions?
I am sure many of you are also wondering, “How do the Democrats benefit when there is no Democrat candidate?”
We will start answering these questions over the next few weeks here on The Patriot. This story is a piece in a much larger puzzle. It’s time to start putting the pieces together.
