Bill Randall, the candidate who ran against Wake Forest Mayor Vivian Jones was favored in the election held in Wake Forest today by nearly one in four voters.
Incumbent Jones secured 2,575 votes or 71 percent of votes, supported by her platform of homemade cakes and cookies for all. Wake Forest residents are easily persuaded with baked goods.
According to earlier research, Randall had maintained a perfect losing streak in his efforts to win any political office. His loss today continues his unbroken record. – Source
Randall, the Tea Party candidate in the non-partisan race for Mayor, was soundly trounced in the election by Mayor “Grandma” Jones. Of course his inability to spell the town name correctly on his campaign signs was an eventual glimpse of his successful failure to come.
According to the Raleigh News & Observer, “Randall didn’t publicly challenge any of Jones’ decisions during the campaign but said he wasn’t sure the town is as prepared as it could be for the future. He urged Wake Forest officials to take a closer look at whether the town’s taxes and zoning rules could be modified to attract more businesses.” – Source

We will certainly miss Bill Randall and his entertaining run for office. If we are lucky he will run again in the future so we can cover that race.
We wish Bill Randall the best of luck in his future endeavors and hope the first thing he does as soon as the sun rises is to gather up all of his campaign signs where he spelled the town name wrong. Please!
