Monty Davenport is firing back at 23-year-old L.J. Bryant, his opponent in the Democratic primary runoff for the land commissioner nomination, for naivete about state spending and underestimating the cost of promised improvements in land office technology.

A hot race for land commissioner. Who knew?

UPDATE: Bryant has responded. He says Davenport’s assertions are “far-fetched” and he’d prefer to continue a positive campaign. But he offers some specific responses to Davenport on the jump.
