Here’s actor, and North Dakota native, Josh Duhamel casually taking a picture wearing a Doug Burgum campaign shirt.
Duaheml pushed the same picture to his prodigious Twitter and Instagram following as well.
A little gratuitous, I think. It’s hard to imagine that Duhamel, a celebrity well schooled in the arts of product placement, just happened to be wearing a Burgum t-shirt while stuck in traffic.
Anyway, good for the Burgum campaign. Duhamel is beloved by North Dakotans, as well he should be. He’s a great guy who has done a lot for his home state.
Hopefully, though, voters will cast their ballots – be they for Burgum or his opponent Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem – on the issues and not a celebrity endorsement.
