Paul Richards Gets Noticed by a Montana Newspaper

Shares


The Gazette’s Jim Gransberry has written one of the first articles devoted to Paul Richards’ campaign for the Democratic nomination. It’s a little light, listing Richards’ agenda rather than explaining much of it, but a mention is a nice step.

One key point that Richards makes in the article is that his campaign is focused on issues–and I think it’s a very fair point. He has been much more specific about what he believes on policy questions than Tester, or especially Morrison, who still, as far as I can tell, has no opinion on the Iraq War. Obviously, Richards isn’t going to win this election, but it’s really important to have a liberal voice on issues like renewable energy, the war, and health care, to name a few.

I hope that he will continue to get more coverage as the campaign goes on.
