Bill Cleaveland favored for win.

Steve Mabry, Bill Cleaveland’s campaign manager says he is encouraged by the Republican Blog that shows Cleaveland ahead in the polls. Bill Cleaveland is one of five vying for the Republican nomination for the 17th District. Though he is not holding up the poll as an accurate measurement “it does give some finger on the pulse of the community.” Mabry admitted “it’s a roll of the dice – it depends on the weather – whether my tire is flat – the length of graduations taking place.”

Mabry who was Senator Ralph Smith and Vic Thomas’s campaign manager believes they have motivated their supporters to turn out. He feels confident that Cleaveland will emerge on top.

Cleaveland had a large crowd at his announcement, did well at the forum, and leads in blog polls.

Mabry is hoping for quick results tomorrow night for the 17th District.

Whatever the outcome they will all unite behind the winner and present a united front as they set out to fend off the Democratic nominee, Roanoke City Council member, Gwen Mason in November.

All five candidates will gather at the Hotel Roanoke in the Shenandoah Ball Room when the polls close at 7:00 PM to watch the returns together.
