Brad Johnson’s Campaign Releases Impressive Photo

While I’m just a humble classroom teacher and not a campaign strategist, I feel confident saying that posting this photograph might not have been the best public relations strategy for whatever office Brad Johnson is planning to lose the race for this year.


In case you can’t read it, the caption reads Successful DC fundraiser for Brad Johnson candidate for Montana Secretary of State.

I’m not sure that chasing Washington cash for a state job or highlighting the fact that only two people showed up makes the case that Mr. Johnson has overcome his recent electoral difficulties as effectively as he might hope.

Surely a candidate for PSC Commissioner of Political Practices Secretary of State can do a bit better.

If you appreciate an independent voice holding Montana politicians accountable and informing voters, and you can throw a few dollars a month our way, we would certainly appreciate it.
