Josh Penry may be quickly becoming the leading Republican candidate for governor, thanks to the rapid implosion of Scott McInnis' campaign and the difficulties Ryan Frazier is having in regard to gaining traction -- but not everything's going his way. Yesterday morning on his Twitter feed, he wrote, "What kind of a person steals a man's BBQ grill? It happened to me this weekend -- right off my back porch." Minutes later, he followed up by tweeting, "Atn BBQ thieves/law breakers:as Governor, I will be tough on crime. In the meantime, if you see a grill with a Penry sticker call the police!"
Anybody take a look in McInnis' backyard lately?
