Edgar Strategy to Reach Out to Democrats: Recycling?
Posted by OC Insider on September 30, 2012
Conventional wisdom suggests that the winner in AD72 will be the candidate who is best able to reach out to Democrat voters. Troy Edgar’s campaign has apparently really taken this to heart, as they seem to be rebuilding their campaign around a theme of RECYCLING.
And no, I don’t mean that in an effort to appeal to voters in Huntington Beach or Seal Beach that Edgar has organized Beach Cleanup Days or anything like that.
No. Instead, Edgar’s campaign has taken to recycling their Press Releases.
Now obviously saying this is an effort to attract Democrat voters is in jest, but just how stalled is the Edgar campaign that they’re already having to take to using old Press Releases – this past week they sent out a release announcing endorsements from local Mayors, the same release they first sent out on 4/18/12 — to insinuate continued momentum?
Compare that with Allen’s campaign.
- Van Tran comes on board with the Allen campaign as a Senior Advisor.
- Troy Edgar lies to the press about lying to the Federal Elections Commission.
- Allen’s campaign announces the endorsements of Joe Dovinh and Long Pham.
It is clear which campaign has momentum, and which candidate isn’t just stuck in neutral – but seems to be cruising in reverse.
