Georgia Democratic Senate candidate’s leaked campaign memo:
Hot Air.com ^ | July 28, 2014 | ALLAHPUNDIT

Wish I could take credit for that headline but it’s Aaron Gardner’s.

Here’s a nice scoop for Eliana Johnson, who somehow got hold of an early memo prepared by Michelle Nunn’s Senate campaign in Georgia after they stupidly posted it online briefly last winter. Of the many gems within, my second-favorite is the one emphasizing “rural” photo ops to show Georgians that Nunn is one of them. She’s a creature of the Beltway since birth, having grown up in Maryland while her dad Sam served in the Senate, but it’s important when trying to inherit a Senate seat as part of a political dynasty to convince the local rubes that you care about what they care about before being handed the scepter.

As I say, that’s my second-favorite revelation. Here’s my favorite. Those three little letters say so much:

Good news for Jewish donors, I guess. If her line on Gaza ends up being a bit too pro-Hamas, cut her another check and see what happens.

More “rural” pandering here. You trust her to stick to a strong pro-gun-rights line in the Senate, don’t you?

KEYWORDS: michellenun; senate; terrorists
The rest of the title is: She needs Jewish donors. Also, she sort of funded Hamas.

Her response to the ‘What would you do?’ question last week was typically haughty and cowardly: ‘I couldn’t say until I was in office.’

Democrat Campaign Plan:

1. Lie.

2. Raise lots of money.

3. Spend money spreading lies.

4. Raise more money.

5. Spread more lies.

6. Organize voting fraud.

7. Make sure that core Democrat voting blocks (illegal aliens and dead people) vote early and often.

If Perdue’s campaign (or even the Georgia GOP) doesn’t use this memo in a TV or full-page newspaper add, they have no business being in politics.

She’ll show that Sam Nunn in more popular in GA than Jimmy Carter, whatever that’s worth.

They probably don’t know about the memo, and it will be hard to put it in a commercial that the sheeple can comprehend.

The Democrats will try to shame him into not using it, calling him misogynist, a hater, and taking an unfair advantage of an obvious mistake. They will try to make using the issue the issue.

I am looking forward to voting against her and against Jimmy Carter’s grandson in the gov. race.

I am not a Nathan Deal fan, but I will vote for him over a Jimma Carter redux.

DId they actually say they are “TARGETING” gun owners? Wasn’t that a total no-no for Sarah Palin just a short while ago after Giffords was shot?

I used to work with someone at Fort Riley, KS during the 70s who was from GA when the peanut farmer ran for president. She said he was the worst governor that Georgia had

My dad worked for the state at the time. He left the DNC because of Carter. Carter was so incompetent that he reevaluated.

That’s precisely why I voted for Handel. I would have rather had Paul Broun, but they’d crush him in the media.

Handel on the otherhand would have forced them to change their game plan drastically.

The 144 page memo i available of downloading at the linked article. I perused it just now. Most of it appears to have been written in late 2013, but their si some juice in it.

They expect the campaign and dem affilates to raise $37 million and for the republican opponent and affilates to raise $46 million. Their plan is to directly raise $15 million. None of it from direct mail or telemarketing, although the are planning to do resolictation mailing (mail to people who have given already). Early on they say they need $18 to 20 million to win.

They are predicting 2.7 million voters in the general and they need to garner 1.4 million of them. They talk about enlarging the vote while surpressing the republican vote. It does not describe how to do that.

If Alison Grimes is “Grimey”, then this witch can be “Scuzzy”.

Michelle Nunn prefers to be called “Fish Hook” (as in “last time I saw a mouth like that it was caught on a fish hook”).
