Honour campaign headquarters opens and, briefly, so does his Twitter account

Scott Honour, one of four announced Republican candidates for governor, held an old-fashioned campaign rally Tuesday night at his new headquarters, followed Wednesday by a newfangled snag in modern-day campaigning — a computer hack.

@ScottHonourMN sent a message to his Twitter followers this morning: “We’ve been hacked, if you receive a DM please ignore it; do not click on the link.”

That tweet was followed within seconds by a second one assuring all that the account password had been changed.

Honour, officially opening his headquarters in Plymouth, celebrated in Minnesota-style with what he called his “official campaign beer” and “the best hot dogs in Minnesota” — respectively, Grain Belt Nordeast and hot dogs from Garbers’ Meats in Lester Prairie.  Attending the open house was former Republican U.S. Senate candidate Kurt Bills, who announced Wednesday that he is supporting Honour.

Honour and fellow Republican candidates Jeff Johnson, Dave Thompson and Kurt Zellers meet Thursday in the first candidate forum of their trek to be the GOP nominee to challenge Mark Dayton in 2014.

    Juggernaut!

    This has to be the dullest campaign-kickoff story in the history of journalism.

    In addition, I’ll hazard a guess that Ms. Brucato’s posts are the only media outlet in the world that would bother to report on a Kurt Bills endorsement.
