Can Mattiello survive? The Speaker has gotten many breaks along the way and continues to push the voters to return him to the statehouse as Speaker. The Mattiello campaign is trying to delay the upcoming Britt felony trial to after the election and the Speaker has been out of the headlines due to the pandemic. This race is way to quiet with weeks passing without any news. News on schools will soak up most of the news coverage in September, the virus is still here and the Presidential election. Unless he gets indicted, Mattiello stands a good chance to win in November.
