And today marks exactly one month until the June 3 primary election!
There’s only one person on my campaign – me. So that means I do it all. And lately I haven’t been doing anything.
Why? Well, I could give you some reasons, like the following:
- Jenny is working a new job and I watch Paul in the evenings;
- All of my free time is spent trying to get writing work;
- I just don’t feel motivated.
Those are the main reasons I haven’t gotten out and knocked on doors in a month.
I’ve got a box of election flyers just sitting here and some remittance envelopes as well. Hell, I’ve even got a few hundred bucks in my election bank account, which is a few hundred more than I’ve got in my personal bank account!
There’re a lot of political signs sprouting up in Missoula yards. I’ve seen a few Willis Curdy signs and even a few for Heather Cahoon. I expected the former but not the latter.
How many signs have I got? None.
Yep, not a single political sign.
Most people would write off my Montana election campaign as a joke right there. Well, maybe it is. I’ve confined most of my activity lately to commenting on the Misoulian website. You can read my comments here.
Will that get me elected? I highly, highly doubt it.
There is a TV broadcast next week, and I did go to a meeting of the Target Range Homeowner’s Association a week or two ago.
So my campaign’s not dead, it just might look like it. But that also means I’m not suffering what many political campaigns in Montana are suffering right now, and that’s bad press.
Yep, many Montana House and Senate races are all over the place in the media. Either Montana candidates are accepting dark money from out of state or they’re trying to hurt Montana more than help it.
At least I don’t have that problem. Early ballots go out in the mail on Tuesday. That’s when voting begins, and in exactly one month we’ll know the outcome.
