Tom Tangney: Why Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn is losing to Ed Murrayon November 6, 2013 @ 1:16 pm (Updated: 1:46 pm - 11/6/13 )
So why is McGinn failing?
KIRO Radio's Tom Tangney said the problem with McGinn and why Seattle didn't like him is because he's a little too feisty for the Seattle "nice."
"He never walked away from a fight," said Tom. "He seemed to encourage it. "
Of course it was a verbal fight, it wasn't actually "fisticuffs," he's no Rob Ford, conceded Tom.
"He's the kind of guy that wants to confront things and take them on head-to-head, and win or lose - he's going to fight, like the tunnel issue."
But according to Tom, Murray is just the opposite. He wants to do things behind the scenes - he's a consensus builder.
"So last night (election night), during his acceptance speech, he mentioned all the city council people, the city attorney, all the people that didn't like McGinn - he's bringing them into the fold."
