Good morning! Back again with another Bruce’s Take. That’s two this week, so I’m on track to hit my “at least three a week” mark. 👍

Now on to today’s Take. (Or possibly Take. Not sure what AP Style says about this. <g>)

Nick Storm of KY Fried Politics had an interesting article on his site about Ryan Quarles making a “shooting the gap” play. We cross-posted the article here, if you haven’t seen it yet.

“Shooting the gap” is a racing term that refers to a horse that is running behind in the race, when an opening appears between the front-runners and the jockey steers the horse through the opening and into the lead. Storm posits that Quarles is making that play by calling out both of the front-runners, Cameron and Craft, for slinging mud at each other – while he, Quarles, has focused on getting out into the state and talking with local voters.
