2013 Mayoral Candidate Kevin James
At lease one member of the "Old Gray Hag on Spring Street's" insular columnists gets out and about within the City of Los Angeles Political Grass Roots Community, and its the highest paid one at that.
But taking a look back in recent mayoral election history, what did a lack a campaign money (compare to Mayor Villar's campaign chest) do for the political aspirations of Walter Moore? Moore, and a "Telebimbo" kept Mayor Antonio Villar from becoming Governor Antonio Villar.
James compare to Moore, is softer on the political edges and can use Moore's base to make a serious play at one of the runoff spots, while growing an wider electorate.
But for James, his grasps on the outsider label is predicated on the likes of County Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky and Developer Rick Caruso staying out of the 2013 proceedings. If one or both enter the race , then James will end up in the political rain shadow of monetary support that will shift to either one of the two.
