Gov. candidates get substantive

John Brummett steps back for a moment and realizes ... there has been substance in the governor's race.

Lately the candidates have been talking about charter schools, pre-K programs, the grocery tax, the state budget surplus and the uses of alternative agricultural products.

So, there you have evidence that the governor's race is not altogether nonsense, even if the nonsense is what you mostly hear. You also have evidence that these candidates might be better men than their behavior sometimes indicates.
