ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – The Charlie Dooley campaign predicts it will win by 5 to 7 percent, claiming by the time the polls close, it will have knocked on 35,000 doors and made 30,000 live phone calls to get supporters to the polls.
“[We have been] taking our ground game seriously for several months, and we just intensified the level – double the level over the last 11 days,” says the county executive’s campaign manager is Damion Trasada.
Meanwhile, challenger Steve Stenger has help today from orgainzed labor. Bob Soutier is president of the Greater St. Louis Labor Council.
“I think Stenger’s going to win. I think he’s going to win from somewhere north of seven points,” Soutier says. “If he’s less than seven, I’ll be a little disappointed.”
Soutier says his labor group aims to deliver 35 to 50,000 votes for Dooley – votes that Dooley enjoyed in past elections. But this time, the big union group is siding with the challenger, Stenger.
