Here’s a picture of the event, which had nearly every candidate we’ve got for these 15 races.
Republicans, on the other hand, don’t have a clear focus. Right now their Senate president has stepped down to run for the House! That doesn’t exactly inspire confidence, no matter how you want to explain it.
Later in the evening the Missoulian article on the Missoula Democratic event appeared.
Following the rally we headed over to the Union Club. There we talked for nearly two hours about the legislative priorities each official and candidate has.
I talked about the Main Street Montana Program, which is something I think will be critical in getting those high-tech, IT, content marketing, social media, and other 21st century jobs here.
What’s even better, though, is that the program is trying to start those jobs here, not just bring them from out of state. This is great, since we’ve got lots of graduates that want to stay here, but they just can’t due to a lack of opportunity.
The Democratic fun continues tonight at the Burns Street Bistro beginning at 5:30 when all the candidates will be available to talk about the issues with the public. I’ll be there with my wife and son and I hope I can see some of you there too.
