According to inside sources, Assembly Democrat leadership appears to have struck a deal with Republican John Hambrick, not to support his Democratic rival Owen Carver. Even tho Assembly District 2 appears to be in play this election due to the significant increase in Democratic registration efforts and turn out during a Presidential Election, Assembly Democrats prefer Speaker John Hambrick over the young and dynamic new candidate Owen Carver. Carver responded to the article by saying: SEE VIDEO Owen won a three way race in the primary. Owen Carver is a young business owner of an internet company and gives to educational causes. Carver, a former Zappos customer service and corporate cultural trainer, is advocating using technology to reduce administrative costs in the School District rather than increasing taxes.
