Recently I pointed out a couple of perspectives on recent endorsement announcements here in the 8th District. Here’s another perspective from Todd at Party of Know.
My question is, how then can an endorsement from outside the district really be relevant? The problem I’ve always had with Ribble’s campaign is that he lived outside the district when he announced. I think that’s called carpetbagging — the wikipedia defines it here: “the term is sometimes used derisively to refer to a politician who runs for public office in an area where he or she does not have deep community ties, or has lived only for a short time.” Being from outside the district and making a big deals about endorsements from outside the district make me wonder how committed Reid Ribble is TO the district…
(Ed. While J.J. Keller & Associates is outside the 8th district, it has been brought to the blog’s attention Bob Keller does live in the district. This makes it an in-district endorsement as it was from Bob not the company. 7/1).
