I am not like most bloggers. I do not attempt to be a journalist. I completed that phase of my life when I graduated high school. (Human Intrest wasn’t my thing, and thats what sells in journalism.)
So I will put it as blunt as I can without offending anyone.
The North Dakota Republican Party has chosen outsiders of the “inner circle” to take on Pomeroy and Conrad.
I have met and spoken with both men. Nothing too in-depth, but none the less, I feel I am a pretty good judge of people, always have been in the past at least.
The critics may scoff and say they have no chance in November, but that is a piss poor attitude for anyone on our side to take.
Understanding reality is important; but Hope, is more important in the long run.
I’ve been an outsider looking in all my life so I have not met poltical figures until the last 2 years when I’ve actually got myself involved.
There is something different about both Dwight Grotberg and Matt Mechtel.
My advice to both candidates, for whatever it is worth, is this: Let the worst they can say about you be that you are – good guys.
If you can do that, I firmly believe that the people of North Dakota will recognize it, and reward it.
