Democratic Gubernatorial Race Not Going As Planned

Star political columnist Matt Tully makes some good observations today about the Democratic race for governor between Jill Long Thompson and Jim Schellinger:

  • "A month before the May 6 primary, it's fair to say former U.S. Rep. Jill Long Thompson has emerged as the better Democratic candidate."
  • "[A]fter promising a positive campaign, Schellinger recently went negative. That smelled of desperation. On the other hand, Long Thompson's campaign, on a tighter budget, has been free of such drama."
  • "But Schellinger sounds like a CEO when he talks grandly about jobs; Long Thompson zeroes in on everyday concerns."
  • "Long Thompson has taken on the establishment and run a much better campaign."

You might want to take a look at my perspective on Tully's column.

Needless to say, I think he's pretty wrong.
