Hey, any of you folks thinking about dress rehearsals for a statewide race? Don’t start in Springfield unless you really don’t care. Here’s a video launch with Hank Naughton announcing his campaign for AG in a loud diner with a shaky camera and a fairly unknown state rep. standing up with him.
Hank Naughton, who is a swell guy on a personal level, (right of center) seems to be looking for a promotion. Last May he was feeling like a Lt. Governor race as reported by the top-notch, laser-sharp, flawless Republican newspaper. The Republican is the paper of record for the third largest city in the state that proudly waves it’s global education credentials. The Republican printed Naughton’s picture in today’s newspaper with the same state rep. (mentioned as a footnote in the video linked above) at the diner with a couple of other local pols. But guess what…..and this is true…..we don’t get to know who they are because the paper of record printed the caption that went with the article below Hank’s photo op – with the school kids names – not the pols. Not the candidate’s name announcing his bid for AG.
I make not this $hit up. Looked for a screen (scream) shot to share but they may have woken up the editor who must have been asleep again after staying up all night scheming about slots in Springfield…..again…..and s/he must’ve deleted the picture/caption.
