Wow! The citizens of 19A are lucky -- it looks like all of their candidates not named "Allen Quist" are indeed civic-minded to one degree or another.

Editor's note: perhaps so, but Golgart was speaking as the president of a non-partisan organization when he made those remarks. What Bluestem hears is that as a veterans' service officer, Golgart is always a professional, working effectively for veterans without bringing his personal political stances into his work for vets. Bluestem thinks that in a time when citizens want politicians to quit bickering and get their work done, this quality--rather than party purity--would be an asset. But we're not delegates to the endorsing convention--and it will be their decision.
