Let the campaigning begin!

Walking to Independence Stadium was like walking a gauntlet as mayoral candidates and their supporters lined either side of the main thoroughfare making their pitches.

Arlena Acree had a tent with cooling mist sprays for passers-by and free food.

Liz Swain's headquarters were a bit simpler - an RV with a picnic table out front.

But the unabashed king of mayoral candidates was Jerry Jones. Jones had three RVs parked in a U-shape and a giant banner proclaiming whose camp it was. It looked like a rock band had pitched a camp.
