“The ‘My Man Mike’ slogan tells you everything you should know about the ego of my opponent,” Jamison said in a weekend speech, referring to Huether’s 2010 campaign slogan.
In addition to the keynote speech on Saturday, Jamison has long worked with the Republican Party. He talked about his policy goals during the address but saved his sharpest criticisms for how Huether interacts with officials and the public.
“Here’s what happens when a politician’s ego enters the room before he does,” Jamison said. “The focus of a good policy discussion turns quickly to: ‘How fast can I hold a press conference to announce it? Will the media show up? What should I wear? Will my hair be OK? I get mad when the media doesn’t cover it.’ ”
