ICYMI: Democrat Gubernatorial Candidates Not Ready for Primetime
In case you missed it, Ben Jealous is the latest Democratic candidate for governor to botch a major campaign rollout.
First, Kevin Kamenetz stepped all over his campaign kickoff when it was discovered that a county employee using his official county email encouraged fellow county employees to attend the political announcement which occurred during the workday. Then he was widely mocked after his Facebook announcement of his gubernatorial run showed him to be posting from Stuart, IA.
Two days later, Krishanti Vignarajah was called out for dodging questions about her eligibility for office at her own campaign kickoff.
Now, Ben Jealous is being criticized for his bizarre and rambling rollout of running mate Susan Turnbull. In his introduction of Turnbull, Jealous says he is running to “remove Hogan from the White House.” Turnbull then shows she can one up Jealous in the gaffe department, boasting of being a political insider and Washingtonian.
