Seven years ago today a Marine named Greg Ballard stunned the Indy political experts by beating Bart. I remember standing near a stage in Downtown Nashville TN, covering the CMAs for RTV, and not believing what I was hearing down the phone line from the Smiley Morning Show. (In my defense it *was* kind of hard to hear with “Big & Rich” playing for Good Morning America in the background.)
Unlike most of the political types who would visit Channel 6 in the morning and stay close to their entourage, Greg would always wander over to the weather office to shoot the breeze with me & Tom Davis. He even appeared in a couple of Off The Cuff videos, so clearly he was not listening to Consultants. Good luck to him & Winnie with the next gig.
