In a press release announcing his candidacy for the state senate Corey Corbin, the former campaign manager for congressional candidate Gary Dodds said that he feelt the atmosphere around the office made it easy.
"While I think Gary may have a shot at the Primary, he needs to get serious if he wants to win. In the few months I was leading the campaign, I had yet to see Gary take this race seriously. He won't raise money outside of his
own, he has a hard time with public speaking and never seems willing to practice, and he slips up on issues and facts. Whoever he finds to take over that campaign has a lot of work ahead of them."
