Fox to Enter Race for Attorney General


It’s pretty difficult to go anywhere in Helena without running into a lobbyist or politico of some sort—in fact, usually groups of them, as they tend to travel in packs. The one thing I keep hearing from them is that it’s all but certain that Tim Fox will be announcing another bid for Attorney General very soon, with an announcement coming as early as next week.

Multiple, reliable sources have indicated that Fox is not so quietly beginning the process oftimfox_thumb ramping up a campaign and raising money. Given his unsuccessful foray into Twitter, one hopes part of his campaign will involve hiring a social media team.

It’s certainly news to warm a Koch Brother’s heart, given that they are  quite likely to continue supporting him while he supports their radical, anti-Montana, anti-worker agenda.

Fox’s entry into the race certainly shouldn’t come as a Shockley to anyone given the current Republican candidate’s fundraising difficulties, but it does underscore how important it is for Democrats to choose a strong candidate who will be ready for attacks from the opposition.

In his bid for AG against Steve Bullock, Fox distorted Steve Bullock’s record shamelessly, all while ignoring the real issues an Attorney General must focus on.  A 2012 campaign from Mr. Fox is quite likely to continue that pattern.

  • Appreciating the dedication you put into your site and detailed information you provide. It’s awesome to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same outdated rehashed material. Great read! I’ve saved your site and I’m adding your RSS feeds to my Google account.

  • Hey! This is my 1st comment here so I just wanted to give a quick shout out and say I genuinely enjoy reading through your blog posts. Can you recommend any other blogs/websites/forums that deal with the same topics? Thanks for your time!

  • Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  • Hmm it seems like your blog ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any suggestions for beginner blog writers? I’d definitely appreciate it.

  • Thanks for the concepts you discuss through your blog. In addition, a lot of young women who become pregnant do not even attempt to get health insurance coverage because they are full of fearfulness they wouldn’t qualify. Although a few states currently require that insurers present coverage despite the pre-existing conditions. Charges on most of these guaranteed plans are usually bigger, but when with the high cost of medical treatment it may be a safer approach to take to protect your financial future.
