I am rather perplexed that congressional candidate Hunt Downer, R-Houma, would criticize the endorsement of the Assumption Parish Executive Committee of the Republican Party due to the fact that it only has one member.
His official campaign’s quote: “It must have been a pretty tense argument for the one member of the St. James and Assumption Parish PECs over who to endorse.”
I can assure you that I struggled terribly with this endorsement, so, in a fashion, it was a pretty tense argument.
However, I am not merely perplexed at the criticism of the size of the Assumption PEC, I am perplexed that he was actually surprised that his opponent was endorsed when Downer’s campaign never contacted me seeking an endorsement.
