Living in CA-52, I posted before how Scott Peters was calling me, a registered Republican that votes in every election. Yesterday, they took it up a notch. I saw a Scott Peters flyer at my house and my wife (also registered Republican) said a precinct walker came to our house. It wasn’t a random door-to-door, they had our names and a clipboard and asked if we are voting for Peters. My wife said no, and they logged it on their sheet. Makes me wonder if they’re planning repercussions after the election!(/sarcasm)
This also comes after seeing everyday an email from the Peters campaign showing up in my junk email. I never subscribed for this so they must have it from the registrar of voters. These emails are more partisan usually warning of Boehner coming to town or attacking abortion then asking for micro-donations.
What this campaigning tells me:
– Peters campaign recognizes that a GOTV of Democrats won’t do it.
– Independents are either not enough or not enthusiastic enough to vote for Peters
– Peters is hoping to find the angry GOP social voters that Eric Andersen addressed
– Peters is spending a lot of his remaining on hand moneyon a variety of campaign tactics if he’s willing to chase GOP votes.
