A few hours ago, I posted press releases from the two leading candidates in Georgia 9. The one from Martha Zoller indicated an endorsement from the American Conservative Union.
I’ve just received a phone call and email from folks associated with ACU saying no such endorsement was made, noting that Collins received a 100% rating on their scorecard. Zoller would not have been ranked on their scorecard as she is not a Georgia legislator.
UPDATED: Both local and D.C. representatives of the American Conservative Union deny having issued an endorsement. The American Conservative Union PAC, which apparently does not coordinate with the ACU field team, has expressly endorsed Zoller and is paying for robocalls on her behalf. I have been forwarded an email from ACU PAC which expressly uses the word endorsement.
While the body of this morning’s press release from Zoller indicated that the endorsement was from ACU PAC, the headline omitted the last three letters and said only “American Conservative Union”. Mrs. Zoller has indicated a correction on that is forthcoming.
I’ll let you folks decide what this means exactly. ACU has issued a 100% scorecard for Doug Collins. ACU PAC is doing robo calls on Martha Zoller’s behalf. …Step 2….Profit?
