Buried at the bottom of this story on Seifert’s announcing his run is a very disturbing point. (emphasis mine)
Only Johnson and Thompson have pledged to abide by the party endorsement. Seifert and the others are aiming for the primary election.
Frankly I’m not surprised. Seifert has been less than truthful on his campaign just starting. Numerous people have reported calls from Seifert stating that he was running for Governor BEFORE the State Central Straw Poll and claims that he had nothing to do with the write in campaign are false. I am also not surprised because of Seifert’s previous campaign decisions and lapses in ethical standards.
Character matters. If the rollout of the campaign rewrites history, what will the rest of it look like?
