Got an e-mail yesterday from someone with the campaign looking for PA volunteers to work DE in anticipation of their Tsunami Tuesday primary. I plan on volunteering, but I am somewhat bemused that they think it’s a good idea to start pounding the pavement and calling people at home the week before Christmas.
I know it seems like the primary is right on top of us. We’ve been talking about this election for a coon’s age, and we’re now coming up on some actual voting. Seems to me, though, they have over a month to cover all of DE without hassling people during Christmas.
If other candidates are doing it, I would instead send out a piece of direct mail wishing GOP voters a Merry Christmas, and warning them they’ll probably hear from the campaign in the New Year. After all, DE polls are pretty thin on the ground, but all the ones I can find indicate Team Rudy has the inside line on those 23 “winner take all” delegates.
I know every delegate counts, but still…
UPDATE: At least one Delaware paper is backing Giuliani: The Foster Daily Democrat’s endorsement is here. For today only! PA for Hizzoner is now DE for Hizzoner.
Seriously, I have no idea what that endorsement does or doesn’t mean. My knowledge of the First State’s media landscape is pretty sketchy. That said, I’ve always been a fan of this plucky underdog of a state, and an admirer of their fiscal policy. It’s true: I’ve purchased more than one big ticket item at the big box stores right across the border to avoid sales tax.
