Is the Montana Democratic Party’s press release machine broken?

During the special congressional election campaign, Flathead Memo received as many as a half dozen press releases a day from the Montana Democratic Party and the Quist campaign. Then the email stopped. The MDP’s last sign of public relations life, a three-paragraph emailed statement on Greg Gianforte’s assault on Ben Jacobs, arrived on 25 May, the day the election concluded.

Sometimes the MDP blows its horn too loudly, or off key, or both, but not to blow it for a month is not a communications strategy that I would recommend.
