Dying Gasp?

Rarely am I one to make quantitative judgements, particularly on races as close as the one we’re currently involved in for the Republican nomination for Lt. Governor.

However, I just received an email from Casey Cagle’s listserv with the subject line, “URGENT: TURNOUT IS LOW AND THE ELECTION IS CLOSE!”

Is this indicative of the mood at Cagle Campaign Central right now?

    Funny I didn’t get that one, and I get ’em all. This is the one I got:

    Dear Friend,

    I want to ask you directly today for your support in our primary election.

    The polls are already open, and our goal is to turn out every single Georgia voter. My opponent wants mainstream Georgia voters to stay home today — please don’t prove him right!

    To find your polling place, just [CLICK HERE]

    Thank you for your support, and please come out and join us tonight at the Gwinnett Arena for a victory celebration after the polls close.

    Your friend,

    Casey Cagle
    Republican for Lt. Governor

    Yeah, I don’t think we are ever going to see the e-mail that says:

    “Don’t worry, we’ve got this one in the bag. Feel free to sit this vote out. Thanks all the same.”

    This is no dying gasp — it’s called communication with supporters. Every effective ground game has this component.

    Both sides will be “driving people to the polls” until 7 PM tonight — figuratively and literally!

    Southern, how is that a quantitative judgement? I’m not sure that you know what quantitative means.

    I have an e-mail account that is on the mailing list for all the major campaigns and everyone is sending out last minute reminders and appeals. I hardly think that it is a dying gasp but more of a standard reminder.
