We are all suffering a hangover from the intense campaign activity of the past few months. A couple thoughts:
U.S. Sen. Jon Tester and Matt Rosendale spent nearly $60 million on their respective campaigns. That would have bought a lot of sewer, water, road and bridge infrastructure construction in Montana.
Congressional candidates should consider doing in the U.S. what many European countries do. Limiting the campaign season to a few months and limiting the amount that can be spent in the effort.
