Not a lot of attention is paid to Montana’s Supreme Court races.
In the three-way match-up between Laurie McKinnon, Ed Sheehy, and Elizabeth Best, a lot of voters are probably at a loss as to who to vote for. At this point, I’d say Best is most likely to win this race due to her visibility and campaign war chest. I’d also say that Sheehy is most likely to come in second.
That hasn’t stopped McKinnon from going negative.
No doubt many readers’ mailboxes are filling up with campaign literature – a lot of it is just tossed in the trash. However, one piece that has caught some attention is McKinnon’s recent “return your absentee ballots” mailer, which attacks both Sheehy and Best.
Please note that the highlights and underline are part of the mailer.
McKinnon attacks Sheehy and Best for being partisan Democrats; Sheehy, specifically, for suing the State of Montana to prevent the death penalty from being used in a particular case; and Best, specifically, for filing a lawsuit aimed at mitigating global warming.
It goes without saying that this attack piece is not very inspiring.
