Where have we seen an act like this one before?
In Idaho, Harley Brown is running for governor. The perennial candidate stole the show at this week’s GOP gubernatorial debate.
He probably won’t get elected but he may have accomplished something the other, more traditional candidates were unable to accomplish. He got people to watch.
About the blogger
Bob Collins retired from Minnesota Public Radio in 2019 after 12 years of writing NewsCut and pointing out to complainants that posts weren’t news stories. A son of Massachusetts, he was a news editor 1992-1998, created the MPR News regional website in 1999, invented the popular Select A Candidate, started several blogs, and every day lamented that his Minnesota Fantasy Legislature project never caught on.
