I received in email from Ken Miller this morning thanking me for my post about his gubernatorial Facebook page.
Thank you the reporting on our new facebook page for Miller for Governor.
I’m confident you will find more content to come worthy of blogging.
Ken! What could possibly be more important than the fact that you are running for Governor!
I only wanted to correct you on the amount of votes we received in 2004, it was over 22% while we were outspent by both Brown and Davison 10 to 1.
So, not only did you lose, (22% rather than the 13% the internets list) but you also were able to raise very, very little money. Ken, if you have any other facts of interest on your past losses, please continue to send them on.
As I recently posted on Left in the West, Ken Miler was one of 4 Republicans running in the gubernatorial primary in 2004 for the chance to get clobbered by Brian Schweitzer. Miller is a far-right former legislator and furniture outlet store owner from Laurel who, according a letter to the editor in the Bozeman Chronicle once had the support of Melinda Gopher. (Yeah, that doesn’t mean he’s a progessive. Far from it. It only means that Gopher was all over the place back then too.) Miller, who voted for electricity deregulation and even defended it later, was able to garner only 22% of the primary vote in 2004.
According to his Facebook page, Miller now believes that:
We need a governor in Montana that stands with the Arizona governor on illeagal immagration [sic] not the one we have now that supports President Obama.
