Primo: Why didn't these people just come talk to me before deciding to run someone against me? Why didn't they even ask where I stood?
Me: Maybe because you have made your views clear and they know you can't be bought.
Primo: And I called [Guy in next district who has just announced] to congratulate him and tell him he has my full support. I left him a voicemail but he hasn't called me back. Is he against me, too?
Me: Well, he is a federal prosecutor. But I worked with him for a few years on that board and I am pretty sure he is aligned with you on the development issues. He is as anti-gross development as you and I are.
Primo: But he won't call me back. And his friend - who I thought was a friend of mine - won't call me back.
Me: This feels like second grade, doesn't it?
Primo: Yes. I don't like it.
