Benjamin Wachs, writing for the Messenger-Post papers, has a pretty good column explaining why Maggie Brooks’ attempt to run what he calls a “generic” campaign just won’t work against Slaughter.
Wachs also points out something I’d missed, which is that the optics of Brooks announcing her run for Congress at the airport were pretty bad, considering that the biggest scandal on her watch was centered there.
Update: As Jeremy Moule pointed out on Twitter, Brooks announced at the GOP headquarters, so Wachs’ column is wrong.
“Update: As Jeremy Moule pointed out on Twitter, Brooks announced at the airport, so Wachs’ column is wrong.”
Moule pointed out that she announced at GOP headquarters….not the airport.
Thanks, I fixed the post.
