Hatch finally hires campaign mouthpiece

MDE and I have often prodded Mike Hatch’s spokesperson Leslie Sandberg for making political statement from her lofty office in the State Capitol.

Now, it would seem that Hatch is fed up with Sandberg’s antics and hired a campaign spokesperson:

Kari Erickson, a spokeswoman for the Hatch Volunteer Committee, on Tuesday confirmed that the letter is legitimate. In addition to the letter, the committee mailed bumper stickers and "Mike Hatch for Governor" brochures to the supporters.

This is really a shame, I was looking forward to making more fun of Sandberg.

Or maybe he hired a campaign spokesperson because he is about to announce his campaign.

If Sandberg was good at her job, Hatch should've brought her to the campaign.

Now it seems she's left at the AG's office where she can inflect less damage.

Look back at the 2004 presidential campaign. Scott McLellan used the White House podium as a campaign mouthpiece everyday - a shrewd strategy in my opinion. He did at times defer to campaign officials, but you cannot deny that he did a lot of campaigning from his official post and I don't recall a lot of outcry on that.

The White House is a little different than the Minnesota AG's office.

Besides, I'm just a partisan that will attack Hatch for anything and everything.

LOL, RM. Nice to see someone actually admit it!
