Scott Honour’s new PAC “Compete MN” came out with an ad that recycles an Honour attack that he’s been using on his Republican opponents. It recycles the cheap shot Honour has been using on the convention trail regarding MNSure. Honour has been claiming that he is the only candidate who wants to get rid of MN Sure.
If a glowing endorsement of the Honour PAC from Michael Brodkorb wasn’t enough to make you gag…. how about it being pegged by MPR for not being accurate? I know, both are less then credible sources in GOP circles, but even a stopped watch is right twice a day.
Honour isn’t the only GOP gubernatorial hopeful that wants to scrap MNsure.
In fact, it appears the biggest difference between him and most of the candidates is that he would opt to move candidates into the federal exchange over fixing MNsure. To be fair, that would be the state’s only option unless it got special permission from the federal government not to participate in an exchange at all.
The ad touting his campaign gets this one wrong.
Honour’s campaign worked very hard to try to nail down all his opponents as pro-MNSure and even said that his opponents wanted to give Dayton a blank check for MNSure. This of course scored some cheap political points, but was … also lacking in the truthiness department.
I have a saying about political candidates… A candidate willing to say anything necessary to get elected, will do anything once they are elected.
I also know that anyone can give a speech to a room full of Republicans. Its easy to craft a speech to hit all the talking points that they want to hear. Its another thing entirely to have a plan to accomplish something.
