A tipster passed along a fundraising e-mail from Russell Fagg to his supporters. Fagg goes right after his fellow GOP’ers off the bat.
Below is Fagg’s solicitation in full, but the here are some of the highlights:
- Calls his opponents Matt Rosendale and Troy Downing a “disaster-in-the-making for Montana”
- Refers to himself as a “true Montanan” which leads us to believe he thinks Rosendale and Downing aren’t true Montanans.
- Says his opponents are “part-timer who doesn’t understand our state or our people.”
- Fagg says Downing moved here “no sooner than 9 years ago” a nice subtle dig at the ever-changing residency story coming from Downing.
- Leaves out Dr. Al Olszewski. Which is sad. Poor guy can’t even get attacked by his opponent.
Those are some harsh words coming from Fagg. It would seem like ole Russell sees himself backed into a corner and now he’s hitting back. This primary has been a bit of a snoozefest but with Fagg going negative it could be a lot more fun. With friends like this who needs enemies?
“It may not be fair, but it’s the truth.”
Last week, I said that during a debate with Troy Downing and Matt Rosendale, to call out a major flaw in their pitches for U.S. Senate. You see, they say they want to represent Montana, but Matt Rosendale just moved here 15 years ago, and Troy Downing no sooner than nine years ago.
If either one of them wins the Republican nomination — and the primary election is just **two months** away — the Democrats are going to hang that fact over their head in every TV ad, mail piece, and news story from June to November. In fact, it’s already begun: Montana Democrats already released an ad making fun of “Maryland” Matt Rosendale’s non-Montana accent a day after this debate took place.
It may not be fair, but it is the truth.
Running for office isn’t touch football, and you don’t get a participation trophy at the end.
We’ve got just two months left to prevent this disaster-in-the-making for Montana!
I’m a fourth-generation Montanan, with deep roots in my community, in my church, and a lifetime of service as a judge, a legislator, and an attorney. This is your chance to make sure a true Montanan runs against – and defeats – Jon Tester, instead of a part-timer who doesn’t understand our state or our people.
