Mark French Endorsed by Flathead County Republican Chair

by jhwygirl

Flathead Beacon reports:

Well well well – fresh on the heels of Tuesday’s anti-incumbent fueled primary elections elsewhere in the U.S., Flathead County Republic Chair Ava Walters gave Mark French an endorsement that would of had 10-year congressional alumni Representative Dennis Rehberg bragging:

“I find Denny Rehberg makes a great politician and certainly knows his way around Washington DC. After all, he has been there for 10 years. Denny Rehberg has served Montana fairly well, but I think it is time for a change. Since we have a great candidate in Mark French, I am supporting him as a private citizen and encourage all of you to join me in your support of Mark as well.”

Instead, it’s Mark French that’s bragging.

Who else has endorsed French? Brent Matson, Chairman of the Lake County Republican Party….and militia hero, former Sheriff Richard Mack.

I see French signs – more than I’ve seen Rehberg signs. I see ’em in Missoula County, in Ravalli County, in Mineral County…in Powell, Lewis & Clark, Deer Lodge.

Rehberg’s never seemed to do much campaigning. I think it’s his modus operandi to do as least as possible when it comes to campaigning, lest risk having to become engaged. It’s much like, frankly, his work in congress for the last 10 years.

Save for his engagement, for the last 10 years, in earmarks and deficit spending. Rehberg’s been great at that.

Is Dennis Rehberg vulnerable? A Daily Kos/Research 2000 poll done last August shows Rehberg’s numbers aren’t that great – and that was before anti-incumbent Tuesday.

46 favorable, 45 unfavorable with a +/- of 4%. Yikes.

    French might well be worse than Rehberg. Though the family proclaims loudly that they are environmentalists, they left a Superfund site in their wake in Alaska.

    All we need, too, is another theocrat in Congress.

    • French would be horrible. He’s a racist xenophobe, which he’s managed to keep under wraps…and he’s an anti-government loon, who’s branches don’t fall far from the Montana Freemen. Kinda surprising that someone like that would want to get elected to the very government that he hate’s so much.

      If he won the primary, would he get elected? I seriously doubt it.

        He has no redeeming qualities. I don’t see how anyone who has ever spent an hour with the guy could ever vote for him.

        But I’d say the same about at least a couple of people who hold very high elected office.
