      You've got my land line number - and I don't listen to those calls. I don't pick up, and unless I know the number I just delete the messages.

      You want to contact me, email or txt. Or send a postcard - I'll actually see those. NOT anything in an envelope. It goes right in the junk pile and I don't even open it.

      I'm not alone. I get BOMBARDED with crap on a daily basis. I have BAGS of junk mail to be shredded, I don't answer the landline, and I don't watch a lot of TV that's not either onDemand or DVR.

      So don't waste your money. You won't reach me, or anybody like me, and that's a BIG part of the electorate.

      Postcards would work. Targeted online ads can work. If you get my info, text and email would work (at least I'll look at them). If it's a really good ad and online, and goes viral, I might look at it. Or not.

      But frankly, most political ads are really, really REALLY bad. Make yours stand out, and people might go looking for it. Otherwise, you'll just be another reason to fast forward - and if you have a DVR, and watch live with a slight delay, you can even do that if you're watching live things.
