Despite liberal and Republican endorsements, including Richland County Clerk of Court, Democrat Rex Renk loses
It looked like a match made in heaven: Democrat Rex Renk for Clerk of the Montana Supreme Court.
Renk had all the right endorsements:
Yet is was not to be.
Statewide, Renk lost 52 to 48. In Richland County, despite the endorsement of Republican Janice Klempel, Renk lost 73 to 22. Not sure what it means when the endorsement says, "Help us keep the Clerk's Office independent and nonpartisan" when endorsing a partisan candidate. Whatever that is supposed to mean, it didn't go over.
