I wish I met some people a little earlier, some a little later, and some never at all. – Unknown
CME is the once-a-week column that is posted every Friday morning. This is when I look at some of the stories I did not have time to write about during the week.
Here are some of the things that “Caught My Eye” this week:
- Candidate Filing to End
- Corey Stapleton
- Great Falls Tribune
- Weekend Reading Assignments
- One More Thing
CANDIDATE FILING TO END:
Candidate filing in Montana ends on Monday, March 14, 2022, at 5:00 pm.
You can view the Legislative filings HERE.
You can view the non-Legislative filings HERE.
I reside in House District 23 and Senate District 12. While I was not happy with my representation in the last legislative session, I am hopeful that the candidates running for office this time will be successful.
As more information is available, I will be providing commentary about the upcoming primary election in Montana. The primary election is on June 7.
According to my friend Aaron Flint over at the Montana Talks website, former Montana Secretary of State Corey Stapleton is “testing the waters” for President in 2024. (Source)
I hope he has a life jacket…
GREAT FALLS TRIBUNE:
Here is an update to my commentary from Wednesday…
After the third time contacting the Tribune customer service line, I am now, once again, subscribed. They gave me a sweet deal on a digital subscription – $1 for six months.
You should support your local newspaper.
WEEKEND READING ASSIGNMENTS:
Here are some articles you should read this weekend…
GF Tribune – Montana Democratic Party will hire coordinator to reach out to Indigenous voters
The Montana Democrats need a lot of help…
NY Times – Republicans Wrongly Blame Biden for Rising Gas Prices

Cawthorn is a punk…
ONE MORE THING:
Don’t forget to “Spring Ahead” this weekend! Also, prepare yourself to hear the bitching and complaining about it…
I came home last night after playing a gig and found the Daily Montanan report on Stapleton. Gosh, I know I’ll never play that gig! https://mooreonmontana.com/2022/03/12/the-new-cw-corey/
I’ve little patience. I can’t easily find who all filed for our two races for County commissioners.
Mary – it is hard to find that info! Readers?
Here is what I found – the county races are near the end. It’s a little old:
I saw that but wanted today’s update. I’ll probably just wait now til fillings close on Monday. Thanks. I was looking for some easy way. SOS office needs to make it easier. Or again my little patience is the problem.
Mary – With a county as large as Cascade, I would think they could list the candidates on the Cascade Elections website. Thanks, JmB
I went to Political Practices.
I wanted to see County Commissioners’ filings. Bingo.
