Some have reported that Frank Antenori received death threats over the weekend for his anticipated involvement in today's press announcement. We thank Matt Neely, Antenori's campaign manager, for providing the facts that this was not accurate. What Matt did not report, however, is that all of the four candidates, except Randy Graf, had received telephone calls threatening their political futures if they held the press conference as planned. Interestingly, the calls were made with blocked numbers.
One candidate was told over the phone, "You don't know who you're messing with," to which the candidate replied, "Suppose you tell me. Are you the car dealer or the other candidate running in this race?" which question was answered with a click (no pun intended).
