All right, I had to give some thought as to whether or not to post this up here, but the comical nature of it won out. I’ve received several emails from the McBerry campaign (specifically, from his “campaign coordinator”)–although my first instinct upon reading them was that they were spoofs, or some other form of joke aimed at discrediting McBerry. However, with the state GOP and Perdue campaign taking the attitude that McBerry doesn’t even exist, this was unlikely; my latest info is that the Perdue campaign still expects McBerry to get the 12% or so in the primary that’s been predicted for a while.
I’ve determined through other channels that these emails are in fact genuine…so, take a look and decide for yourself what you think about the state of that campaign. All spelling, capitalization, spacing, and punctuation is as it appeared in the original, although specific non-candidate names and organizations have been omitted. Here goes:
for whom this may concern,
Ray McBerry is also needing Volunteers for his gubernatorial campaign. Ray McBerry is excited to be on the ballot in regard to the July 18th Republican primary. We look forward to supporting Ray McBerry in the July 18th primary.
You can research Ray’s platform by going to his website at http://www.georgiafirst.org/. Also, please sign up for updates on the McBerry campaign after you log on to the Georgia First website. The campaign message is Not Washington DC First…Not Atlanta First…But Georgia First!
Please go to the website and download Ray’s photo? The contact email is [email protected]. Also, there’s a DOWNLOAD section on the Ray McBerry website. This will help. PS Please instill…that it’s wrong to exclude or censor certain Republicans?
I’m glad to see the party growing.
However, I wish the party would come to grips with what they’re doing and
acknowledge the Ray McBerry campaign at the state level. I worked extremely
hard on Sonny’s campaign in 2002, but have since found philosophical differences with the Perdue administration.
PS Ignoring and excluding certain candidates like Ray McBerry is setting a horrible precedent in the state of Georgia. I hope some of you will support Ray McBerry. I hope you will let the state organization know that you don’t like what they’re doing.
WILL YOU PLEASE INCLUDE RAY MCBERRY WHEN ACKNOWLEDGING CANDIDATES? I WILL HELP WITH WHATEVER YOU NEED.
Thanks for your help. It appears our campaign has plenty of volunteers for our phone banks and get out the vote drive for this final week. We appreciate your recognition of our campaign… . We also hope that you will vote for the only “true conservative” running in the July 18th governors race, and that’s Ray McBerry. Remember, since Sonny took office in 2002 the state budget has increased by 3 billion dollars. I guess we’re having to pay for all those foreigners and non-Georgians moving into the Atlanta area. One other thing,
Hermain Cain recently had a great article about RINOS (Republicans In Name Only). I hope Sonny was paying attention, and I hope the people of Georgia were too.
So, again, what do you think? I always thought that campaign emails were supposed to be beneficial to the candidates.
