Things That Make You Go Hmmm…

Today the Democrats announced another of their statewide candidates. Vigo County Commissioner Judy Anderson will be seeking the State Auditor’s post…but she doesn’t seem to know who she’ll be running against. She’ll be running against current State Treasurer Tim Berry, but clearly the staff over at Democrat Headquarters didn’t properly prep her for interviews.

Jim Shella lays it out for us on his blog:

Vigo County Commissioner Judy Anderson is the Democratic candidate for Auditor. She will face Republican Tim Berry in the November election but at a news conference this afternoon referred to her opponent as "Todd." The apparent reference to Secretary of State Todd Rokita produced anguished looks on the faces of party staffers who later said she simply misspoke.

She “misspoke?” The FIN would think that it goes without saying that candidates should know the names of their opponents. Talk about amateur hour--could it be that the State Democrats are too busy running a blog to properly screen and prepare their candidates?

Dems with a Blog? Nobody must read it. Do they write it and then comment themselves? This pick for auditor is another Dem example of no experience.

You posted a headshot of the wrong Judy Anderson.

Classic! Just goes to show that no one knows who she is.

I looked for a photo of Connie Nass on the web but all I found were photos of brown recluse spiders!
