And the award for the longest first sentence in a poorly-written news release goes to the Paul Bucher for attorney general campaign for this windy wording:
Republican Attorney General Candidate Paul Bucher repeated his call for primary opponent JB Van Hollen to participate in a series of statewide debates so the public can have a vigorous and honest debate on the candidates’ issues and records, after Van Hollen unveiled a new radio advertisement Tuesday that misleads the voters about Van Hollen’s stand on illegal immigration and pumps up his undistinguished record as a federal prosecutor with meaningless sound bites.
The release, issued Tuesday, goes on to quote Bucher:
The public is sick of career politicians who hide behind misleading advertising spots and try to buy their way into office using personal cash and a home loan.
Haven't heard a whole lot of complaining about candidates taking out home loans to fund their own campaigns, but maybe I hang out in the wrong places.
