King Of The Democrats?

  Recent support for Jim King as mayor despite the recent negative attention he has received has shocked some individuals. Interestingly enough, support for King may include a good many Democrats within council that typically would side with current Council President, David Tandy.

  In September, Denise Bentley, former Council member appeared at a function in Newburg and supported Jim King. After discussing the mayoral race with various Democrats that are currently in council, many have shown support for Jim King. Barbara Shanklin,whose district includes Newburg, has stated her appreciation for Jim King and his support for the Newburg area. Though she has stopped short of endorsing him, she has not been known to openly endorse anyone at this time.

  Other Democrats publicly have yet to openly state their support, but privately it has become an interesting discussion as financial support for Jim King has been growing despite the negative reports, and within council, word is that King may have the vote of the majority of Democrats in council.
