Primo: The architect? For those apartments?
Me: Yes. The one who kept telling you that high-density housing increases property values? Which is why you see so much of it in rich neighborhoods?
Primo: Yes. He is upset that I dropped out of the primary.
Me: Why? Why does he care?
Primo: He thinks I have an obligation to the voters.
Me: But - you and The Challenger agree on the issues. So it's not like the voters have lost a voice.
Primo: He thinks I should have fought it out with her.
Me: About what? You guys agree!
Primo: He said that point of a primary is to "sharpen the sword."
Me: So - did he ever give money to your campaign? Did he ever volunteer to do doors for you? Did he volunteer to phone bank for you? Did he want a yard sign? Did he share your facebook posts and ask his friends to vote for you? Did he come to any of your events?
Me: So - he wants a sharp sword but he doesn't want to do any of the work.
