Note the difference between these two signs. The first was used by the Hawkins campaign during the general (special) election. The second is being used for the June 8th runoff. See what’s missing? It’s the word “Republican”, strangely dropped from this non-partisan special election.
His current mailer to Hall County residents stresses only the importance of having a Congressman from Hall County – and doesn’t once mention the words “Republican” or “Conservative”.
Having declared the Club For Growth a subversive force that has elected the likes of Lynn Westmoreland and Paul Broun, Hawkins now appears to be reaching left for additional votes.
An interesting strategy, but one that shouldn’t be surprising given the mixed message factory that has been the Hawkins campaign. Last week’s “true conservative” now is going overboard to make sure everyone knows that “everyone” can vote. No need for those pesky titles like “Republican” or “Conservative”. Just make sure you show up to protect Hall County’s congressional seat.
…but I just don’t see this playing in the other 14 counties in the district. I wonder if they’ll find out about it.
