There is an interesting story in yesterday’s Baltimore Sun concerning Burns and how his reelection campaign has been influenced by the Abramoff situation. It’s a fairly typical summary of the events, including a note that Democrats have to win in Montana to win control of the Senate. The best quotation, however, comes from Montana Secretary of State Brad Johnson. Unlike our previous Secretary of State, Bob Brown (a public official who stopped just short of sky-writing his name across Montana), we don’t see much of Mr. Johnson. He tells the national news media that Burns has “put that to rest,” attributing it to “The Marine has come out in him.”
