Krebs & Johnson don’t hold a candle to Bjorkman

It’s only been one day since Bjorkman announced he is running for US Congress as a Democrat and the SD GOP Hate machine has already started in on him. For the most part I would probably be agreeing with some of their assaults on Democratic candidates, but with Bjorkman, (faux) insults is all they are going to have.

Just think about it? Put either Johnson’s or Krebs’ resume up against Mr. Bjorkman’s. An attorney turned judge who has compassion for the less fortunate, especially children.

Krebs is a failed shoe salesperson and Johnson, a press release writer for the governor (who quit his elected position to take the job).

The Dems finally have a contender that shouldn’t have any problem mopping the floor with either Krebs or Johnson. Hopefully Ann keeps her paws off the campaign.

Tim Bjorkman to roll the dice with the Dems

I’ve know about Tim’s potential run for several months, but since he was still serving as a judge, several people close to the campaign had to keep the zip lipped, so to speak.

Congress wasn’t Tim’s first pick, he considered a Governor run, and was encouraged by many to run for AG instead (I actually think that would have been his best move and best chance at winning). But he settled on Congress, which also gives him a better chance than governor.

A well connected Republican told me over the weekend that Tim’s decision to run for Congress may have had to do with a little horse trading between his camp and a possible governor campaign camp for Huether, and the reason why MMM put out the very bizarre press release that he was not running for Congress. I’m sure that ordeal made Tim want to take an immediate hot shower.

There of course is having the support of a major political party. (insert laughter here) But since the Dems made Sutton the ‘chosen one’ for the governor race, there is a potential that Mr. Bjorkman may not have a primary challenge, though there are some rumblings about a West River person announcing soon from the Democratic Party.

To be honest with you, after hearing Tim speak a few times now at Dem Forum, my opinion is he will be a true contender to either Dusty or Sharp Shooting Shantel. He is sharp as a tack and has immense compassion for people.

I just hope he is smart enough to run his own campaign and only depend on the state party to ‘assist’ him with certain things instead of running his campaign, but only stuff they can’t screw up, like licking envelopes or handing out candy at parades. Hopefully they will just concentrate on Sutton’s loss so they can allow Mr. Bjorkman to win.
