The other day I wondered by Corey Stapleton would possible donate $90,000 to his own failed bid for governor. Today, the answer became more clear: because this fall he wants to help Democrats remind Montana voters just how unsuited for the governor’s chair Rick Hill is.
The ad, while incredibly awkwardly animated, isn’t really unfair. Everyone knows that Hill has other baggage he’d like voters to forget, so Stapleton is being more than fair to point out Hill’s policy failures. He did support a sales tax. He did turn Workers’ Comp into a mess. And he did make an obscene amount of amount with sweetheart real estate deals.
So thanks, Corey. You’re probably still not going to crack 10% in the primary, but we appreciate this ad.
