Sponsors Aint Everything.

Standing on outside looking in I'm thinking at least on the surface that the Scott Brown for U.S. Senate campaign is heading for the lead in this political race.

But the other part of me is thinking that sponsors and money doesn't necessarily translate into winning a race.

I go to the car races alot at White Mountain Motorsports Park in No. Woodstock it's a really good track, well run and unlike the gloss, advertising and Hollywood notoriety that follows NASCAR the races at No. Woodstock is actually car racing not a public relations or media campaign.I've seen time and time again the well financed and big money racing teams get beat by underfunded locals. The same thing can happen in politics.

So what does this have to do with NH politics and the U.S. Senate campaign?

I can't tell you how many times I've seen well financed, well stocked and big money car racing teams get beat out by local car racers that have dedicated teams, often under funded, that not only know how to turn a wrench but to race a car that wins! I've seen this happen time and time again.

U.S. Senate candidate Scott Brown has the sponsors, has the money and has the connections. I think many politicos in this state are calling him the winner just because he has the shinyist car and their well paid, arrogant asshole mechanics that think they know just about everything about how to win a race.

Except to actually win the race.

This being said,Jim Rubens and Bob Smith are also experienced in this field. If the car races at White Mountains Motorsports Park is any example I wouldn't be so quick to count either of these campaigns as losing this political race.
