  •  Wagner didn't raise as much money. (3+ / 0-)

    He only had 210K CoH with two weeks to go.  I believe he has stuff on-air outside of SE PA.

    (I'm counsel for Anthony Williams, so I'm not going to offer any opinions on this race.)

    •  lol, I had actually noticed that (1+ / 0-)

      you hadn't offered any opinions yet and was wondering why :)

      I've been flooded with robo calls for Specter (Obama twice, Rendell and Nutter once each - of the calls I bothered answering) and see Specter fliers everywhere.  Sestak doesn't seem to have much presence here.  Granted I watch little TV and none in real time so I could be missing ads, but still...

      Nonetheless I'll be voting and rooting for Sestak!

        But you're right: are they persuading people?  We get mailers from Onorato, Williams and Hoeffel.

        •  I think we have too. (0+ / 0-)

          What's really infuriating is some political organization that keeps calling from Private Name/Private Number (which is how my husband's cell appears on caller ID so I have to answer it), who will ONLY speak to my husband.  They call several times a day and refuse to talk to me; they say they're a political group and want to thank him for his support.  

          I keep saying "Ok, but I write the checks and advise him who to vote for so you can talk to me" to no avail.  (He's aware and interested, but is on his feet away from a computer 12-14 hours a day at work so relies on me to do the research for him).  It ticks me off.

            for General Elections, caller ID will either say Unknown or have a State listed and the phone number. Like during the 2008 election, we got a lot of out of state calls of people who were making calls from OFA.  I would quickly tell them I was also making calls for OFA so we need to hang up so not to waste our time..we would laugh and cheer as we hung up.

            But this damn primary with the Private Name and Number means the person has blocked their information for Caller ID. So I am now refusing ot answer these calls.

        with mostly Harrisburg and Scranton local networks. We are flooded with Sestak and Specter ads and for Governor: Williams and Onorato ads for the Democratic Gov's side and Corbett is running a ton for the Republican side. He is being opposed by a Teabagger. But he is at least a Half Bagger.  LOL

    •  Thanks for that information as I wondering what (0+ / 0-)

      was going on as when I went to his website, he has a ton of endorsements. He would be the establishment candidate, I would think, as he is all ready working in Harrisburg as Auditor General.
