Judge Larry Luna won a tight six way race for judgeship in Christian County. Larry spent $40,000 in campaign funds. "Would you rather spend 20 and lose or 40 and win", says Luna who jokes about spending 40k to get a $96,000 a year job.
Luna campaigned heavy in the last few weeks endlessly pounding on doors. Luna had some professional assistance in developing his strategy and saw himself at a bit of a disadvantage because his practice was in Taney County. As he went door to door in Christian County Luna found he was more connected to the community than he thought. Luna made an appearance this weekend at the Branson Chamber of Commerce Black Tie Celebration at Chateau on the Lake.
