As I was driving in to work today, listening to my favorite radio show, “Savannah’s Best News with Bill Edwards” on 1290 AM WTKS, the host (Bill Edwards, duh) made a point that I hadn’t thought of until then. I thought that point ought to be repeated here for the masses to discuss.
A caller called in saying that a lot of voters don’t vote because of all of the negative campaigning all the voters know are bad things about each candidate – which is what makes them apathetic. Bill responded saying that there was probably some truth to that and pointed to the Gary Black Campaign as an example of a truly positive campaign.
Now I know we have a tendency to go off on a rant about other things, regardless of what the initial post is about, (John Konop, I am looking at you) but I am curious to hear – all spin and bias aside – who do you think ran the cleanest campaign this season?
