We last saw Joe Kenney when he
Some of the other fringe support he has comes from the libertea crowd: Rep. Leon Rideout, Free Stater Rep. Michael Sylvia, and Rep. Jane Cormier, who wrote a marvelous spin on Joe Kenney's inability to fundraise, posted over at the home of libertea fratboys:
Joe Kenney is running a grassroots campaign in his election against Michael Cryans in the District 1 Executive Council seat. In yesterday’s Laconia Daily Sun, there was an article regarding Cryans receiving a “2 to 1 advantage in funds raised”. For those who have been watching the political left’s ability to ‘raise funds’, it is not surprising that Cryans is 2- 1 ahead.
I actually like the fact that Joe Kenney is willing to take $40,000 out of his own pocket to SERVE NH. It proves Joe has no problem putting his money where his mouth is. Those of us who know Joe, know he is a man of honor. Whether it was as a Colonel in the US Marine Corp or a legislator with a 14 year conservative voting record, voters understand there is a real and substantive difference between the politically backed progressive that is Michael Cryans, and the humble public servant that is Joe Kenney.
There ya go - it's not that career politician Joe Kenney can't raise money. This isn't a self-funded vanity campaign - it's the grassroots campaign of a humble public servant.
Apparently we aren't supposed to wonder WHY a humble public servant with 14 year record is having such difficulty raising money.
Joe didn't mind taking money from special interest groups in 2008.
Any mention made of Joe being a career politician is scrupulously scrubbed from his candidate page.
