Ah, April in Aberdeen, when signs sprout like dandelions…
If your housing needs are already squared away, check out the new political signs:
I first spotted Aberdeen school board member Todd Kolden‘s campaign signs on Saturday.
Signs from incumbent Rep. Dan Kaiser and young first-time candidate Drew Dennert first caught my eye this afternoon. I’ve only seen a handful of each candidate’s signs so far, but invariably, Kolden’s stand alone, while Kaiser’s and Dennert’s stand together.
You could hypothesize that it is possible that support for Kaiser’s arch-conservatism and Dennert’s archer-conservatism mutually excludes with support for Kolden’s less ideological, more pragmatic politics. But it’s much more likely that whoever is handing out Kaiser signs is also handing out Dennert signs and that the incumbent has chosen the challenger he wants as his teammate in the contest against Democrats Nikki Bootz and Brooks Briscoe.
Dennert and Kaiser have endorsed each other:
Evidently not passing the ideological litmus test, Kolden is thus left out in the rain providing color commentary:
I eagerly await the primary candidates’ forum pitting Team Kaiser-Dennert against Lone Wolf Kolden.
