March Madness fuels GOP primary season

John Meredith, of Huntsville, is a former Capitol Hill lobbyist who was recognized as one of the country's 100 most influential Black Republicans.

I love election season. It's my March Madness.

Office races are the brackets. Seeding isn't wins and losses and strength of schedule. It's name recognition. It's who gets the early money. It's the size and commitment of a candidate's campaign. And it's who earns media coverage and how often.
