Attorney and Radio talk show host Kevin James is announcing he is running for Mayor of Los Angeles.
The stay at home bloggers et al no doubt will look for everything they can to discredit Kevin, one of the few media figures in LA who has dedicated hours of airtime to examining City issues. However, Kevin is a serious candidate with a base, relationships to raise money, a real political consultant (not himself or a relative) and a background as a federal prosecutor to boot. Announcing now gives James plenty of time to build a winning organization.
He may not have impressed MSNBC's Chris "Thrill up my leg" Matthews one day, but then most folks outside Los Feliz, Studio City or Brentwood could care less about cable pundits like Matthews.
