When you find yourself at the bottom of a hole, quit digging.

Here’s a good lesson for candidates. Things that might not be effective retorts against your opponent:

In his worst personal attack yet this year, in response to Adam St. Paul’s question on Dakota Broadcasting Thursday about differences between Novstrup and me, Novstrup claims (at 2:35 in the audio) that a relevant difference between himself and me is our employment history: “I’ve had the same job for 24 years; Cory’s had the same job for two months.”

First, Novstrup again gets his facts wrong: I’ve had my current full-time job for three months.

Read that here.

Um… … burn?

State Senator Al Novstrup should thank Bernie Sanders Socialist Cory Heidelberger for somehow managing to run a worse campaign than he did last election.  Because buying billboards which omit the office you’re running for, and quibbling that you’ve been working your job for three months instead of two is the opposite of effective campaigning.

Candidates, when you find yourself at the bottom of a hole, quit digging.

    It was wrong of me to say “Cory’s had the same job for two months” I should have said “Cory’s had the same job for three months.” Maybe with the correction, Cory and I can achieve interpersonal harmony.
    To achieve spiritual unity with our rural brethren, Cory might want to walk back his comment that farmers are welfare recipients as this comment could lead to hurt feelings and misunderstandings.

    Anyone have the 2016 District 3 State Senate election numbers?

    It was terrible for Mr. Heidelberger who campaigned full-time for a year.

    Predictions for 2018?

    As usual Cory twists facts and creates a false allegation that the above statement by Novstup is an attack on Cory’s family. How about the idea that District 3 should vote for Cory because he doesn’t cross his arms? I guess one has to go down that road when your positions on the issues are not popular.

    Heidelberger gets 30% of the vote tops and loses another job this time at a private Catholic college due to mounting pressure from donors.
