    I remember back in the 1980s when L. Douglas Wilder ran for Lt. Gov in 1985.  There were very few ads in which he appeared.  Instead the airwaves were peppered with ads from law white law enforcement officials endorsing him.  Quite effective and under the radar.  That why he became the first African American elected to statewide office in VA.

    By the time he ran for governor, he did appear in ads.
