Memo to candidates running for (fill in the blank)
Placeholder Image
Well, folks, it’s about that time again in the political election cycle when candidates for statewide offices are starting to make their announcements about running for office. If you’re thinking about running for U.S. Senate, governor or the other statewide offices you know it’s only about nine months until the June ’14 primary and you need to do something soon. Now we all know that campaigns cost big money these days and some would-be candidates maybe haven’t decided which special interest groups they are going to cozy up with to get their campaign money -- so they don’t have a lot of cash right now to hire out-of-town consultants to write their announcement speech for them.
