Small tidbit in the Great Falls Tribune about a campaign appearance attended by both John Morrison and Jon Tester:
Earlier, Tester commented on the restrained tone of the primary campaign: “If I win the primary, but lose the general election, I’ve lost.”
Morrison likewise refrained from potshots at Tester. “Montanans are a very civilized people,” he said later, saving his firepower for the policies of the Republican-dominated Congress and the administration of President Bush in general — and Burns in particular.
Let’s hope that the campaigns and candidates keep that tone throughout the primary. Look, there are differences between the candidates in this race, but as long as they can keep the discussion about issues, Democrats (and the winning campaign) will be well-served.
