Ryun, of Lawrence, said his campaign volunteers were lulled into a false sense of confidence because he easily defeated Boyda in 2004.
“It was difficult to get them engaged because they said, ‘Well, you won by 15 points last time.’ ” Ryun said. “I want to say this, I knew from the beginning it was going to be a tough race.”
I guess he would have won if his supporters hadn’t held him back.
One day, he may realize that his volunteers didn’t get engaged because no one really liked him that much.
