Jim Huff, a county board supervisor and former Kenosha police officer, may not have won the Democratic primary for state assembly but he certainly earned respect.
Former state representative Peter Barca entered the race at the very last minute and demonstrated a well-organized campaign that won him the nomination and, as there is no Republican opposition, effectively the seat as well.
It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that Jim was outgunned by a more experienced and better financed candidate. Still, you have to give Jim credit for entering the fray early on and sticking with it against the odds.
Jim Huff may not have earned enough votes but certainly he has earned a measure of respect.
