Former United States Senator John Melcher Endorses Dave Strohmaier for Congress

by jhwygirl

This is political news that somehow has gone by the byways despite what I assume is a press release to the customarily bevvy of media types – I not, understandably, being amongst that customary bevvy of media types.

In other words, I read it on Dave Strohmaier’s Stohmaier for Congress website.

Here’s the endorsement, in Sen. Melcher’s own words:

“I know Montana. I know and hold dear to our values that make us a great people. I also know what it takes to stand up in Washington and fight for Montana’s citizens, families, communities, and values. Dave Strohmaier will put Montana first. Dave will not bend to the powerful special interests in Washington. Working people have a friend in Dave and he’s what Montana’s working people need in Washington. Dave’s experience as a city councilman and a firefighter don’t just connect him with working Montanans; Dave is a hardworking Montanan. Dave has a beautiful family and he’s instilling a love for the land and the importance of community and family in them as we do in Montana. Dave is the public servant we need in the United States Congress.”

“I am thrilled to have Senator Melcher’s support and look forward to his guidance throughout the campaign,” Strohmaier said. “Having the endorsement of a true Montana statesman like Senator Melcher affirms the core values of my campaign–values that I’ll fight for in Washington, D.C., like stewardship, looking out for the needs of future generation, and recognizing that we are one Montana, whether east or west urban or rural.”

Melcher was pretty well-loved around these parts as I hear it, having served in the U.S. Senate for two terms, succeeding the also-beloved Sen. Mike Mansfield. A formal endorsement from the former senator is quite the score, though I know I’ve seen Melcher’s name associated with Mr. Strohmaier’s campaign since his earlier announcement.

    Wow! A “lovely family” is exactly what I look for in a candidate. That Strohmaier can’t win is obvious to all…not just the astute. That Franke Wilmer is doubly more qualified will become so. Dear Senator Melcher in his dotage really is quite a fitting endorsement for dear Dave-of-the-good-intentions. Both have been outside the efficacy circle for the last ten years or more.

    I got a question for the old dinosaur.

    Did you endorse Tester?

    Cause if you did couldn’t you say old Jon boy voted for “special interests”. Like HC (Ins. cos.) and Banks and Unions?
