ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Facing his toughest re-election bid in years on Tuesday, St. Louis County Executive Charlie Dooley says he’s ready.
Dooley tells KMOX that despite the strong challenge from Councilman Steve Stenger, he is leading and expects to win this race.
“I’m leading of course. I’m going to win this thing. There’s no question in my mind about that,” Dooley says.
Talking confidently, the embattled incumbent says he’s busy motivating his base in North County to turn out.
“We have had a ground game since February of this year. It is not new. We know where our votes are, and we’re going to bring them out,” Dooley says.
Dooley’s ground game includes phone calls, knocking on doors and providing rides for voters to get to the polls, he says.
