I am running

At the last moment, I threw in my nomination for MT House District 96 candidacy as a Republican. I am of course, really more Libertarian, but of the two major parties, the ideals of the Republicans line up more closely than that of the Democrats.
After I submitted my nomination paperwork, I had initial misgivings, and thought about withdrawing. But then I thought, "What the heck?" The worst that would happen is that I would get elected, and be sentenced to 90 days in Helena during the winter.
I am running as a fiscal conservative, and therefore, won't spend any money nor solicit donations. No signage, advertisements or anything else that cost money.
Nor am I going to harass my neighbors by banging on their doors at dinner time. If they want to know where I stand, I will set up an appointment and come to see them.
Could be a hoot.
I started a campaign blog at Steve for HD 96 here.

Good luck. You are entering a realm I wouldn't dream of entering. Hell, were I to file my own wife wouldn't vote for me. Were I a Missoulian, there is a very high probability you would get my vote judging from your posts here, you seem a man of good sense. I hope you keep blogging.

Steve, let me know what I can do.

I'll put your Steve for HD 96 on my links. Not that anyone from Montana reads my stuff. Maybe you don't want my support. I am rather mad.

Thanks guys, I really appreciate your support.
Kind of reminds me of the quip from Adlai Stevenson when told by a voter that he had every thinking man's vote, replied, That's not enough, I need a majority.
