If you were to go to Jim Douglas' calendar on his campaign Web site, you would think this is one quiet campaigner. I'd send you there with a link, but there's really no point. There's nothing on it. Not this month, next month or the one after. All the way up to Nov. 4, it's all clear.
His official gubernatorial calendar has a few things on it. Some would argue that everything he does as governor is directed toward his re-election. But it doesn't include any official out-and-about campaigning.
We are led to believe there's not one single fund-raiser. No house parties. Nothing. There is nothing saying he has to tell us, but what was the point of making a calendar on the Web site?
Douglas campaign manager Dennise Casey said the calendar should look more full in the near future after the campaign updates the whole Web site, but it won't include events such as fund-raisers that aren't open to the public.
