The bloggers at the Corrector just love the political ineptness of some of the local Democrat campaign plans. First, Janet Trethewey, wife of Democrat House District 33 candidate Jack Trethewey, calls the ACLU and turns her employer in for “forcing” her to endure a prayer at MSU-Northern’s graduation where she is an instructor. Apparently Democrat Commissioner Candidate Mike Anderson also wants to be included in this fray as Janet Trethewey gave him a glowing endorsement in Friday night’s Havre Daily “News” opinion page. Normally campaign letters to the editor are a good strategy but Mike should have thought this one through a bit more.
Was this strategy something these guys were taught in that Democrat Campaign School they attended? I guess they follow the philosophy of “any news is good for name recognition.” Wow! is all we can think to say.
The campaign finance reports were due in on Thursday and one of our readers was good enough to send us a copy of House District 33 candidate Jack Trethewey’s report that shows all his campaign finance support to date which is posted below with the exception of $420 which was given him by Union PACS. Of the $1,625 that Jack has collected this reporting period only $215 was contributed by people living in his district and of that $185 was given by relatives and a mere $30 was contributed by a person he works with. It doesn’t appear that Jack has much support amongst his comrades. Jack is running against Phillip DeFelice of Havre in the primary on June 8th.
The Corrector will attempt to get copies of all the candidates’ reports next week to see how Jack’s competitors stand but this doesn’t look good for Jack. And as far as this “endorsement” of Mike Anderson we are in a state of “Shock and Awe” but go ahead and keep up the good work, we love it.
It was said best by one of our conservative bloggers as our lone democrat blogger stood with her head hung in embarrassment; “Janet Trethewey, the Republican’s gift that just keeps on giving”
